Brief Answer:
Images dull but doesn't look like a wart.

Detailed Answer:
HI and thanks for this query.

I have reviewed your images but they are not the best of quality. However, the growth in no way resembles a wart. Warts usually have rough surfaces and grow slowly over time. Is this how your developed? Spontaneous growth around the anus are more closely related with hemorrhoids and not warts. If i may ask, what's your sexual orientation?

I hope this helps. I Wish you well. Thanks for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.

Brief Answer:
It's s hemorrhoid.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

With this additional details, it is for sure a hemorrhoid. That is fine and I ill suggest that you stay calm. There is no need for additional medical intervention. For now, make sure that your stools are soft by increasing fruits, vegetables, fibers and fluids intake.

I wish you well.
