Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for your query
The following conditions are possible for you based on your description
1. Anal skin tags - these are normal anatomical variants, and do not require specific treatment, unless you want removal for cosmetic purpose, which is easily done
2. Sentinel skin tag - This is crumpled up skin tissue which lies directly underneath an anal fissure. The fissure would cause painful defecation and sometimes, blood smeared stools.
3. Small peri anal polyp - especially considering your previous history of bowel polyps
4. Anal warts might present in this way

To make an exact and specific diagnosis, you should get yourself examined by your physician.

Hi. Last Thursday I had a wart like growth removed from the top of my yead. The drs office called Tuesday and said it was Squamous Cell Circoma. I'm scheduled to have surgery to remove remaining tissue the 26th of this month. I think the size was 0.5 or .05, can't remember as my mind was racing. My question is how can I be sure that this same type or any other cancer is present in my body? I do not have insurance and this will be self pay. Due to my heart birth defect (my heart is reversed) insurance is very expensive and I honestly just can't afford it. I've tried to get it before but the premiums are higher than my rent. Thank you.

I have Crohn s disease. As a side effect of meds and a depressed immune system , I tend to have warts . In the last couple of weeks I have developed what I thought was another wart on my right hand . However, it has grown to about 1/2 , is red, swollen, painful and has a bit of a crusty top. Any ideas? (I am on a cancellation list for my skin specialist)

I have a question about genital warts. my fiancé found out he has genital warts and we have not done anything due to the fact I have been scared of it but we have been sexual before we knew what it was. I have not shown any signs but on my pant line in the front I have noticed a big purple looking bump to me it looks more like the color of a bruise. my question is could it be a genital wart being up that high?
