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.
Let me know if you have any questions
Take care.

hi, im 22 years old male, 5'6'', 165 lbs. My medical history is good. i dont have any health problems. im not allergic to anything i know of. i do smoke about 10 ciggerettes a day. i recently found a small cluster smaller than a dime in diameter of coliflower like bumps on my genitals just under my shaft on the sac connecting to the shaft of my penis. my concern is that i have genital warts or a type of hpv. is this a serious problem i have at hand? will these bumps go away? is there a medication to prevent bumps like this in the future? my partner has no idea of my situation and im afraid of rejection by her. is this a normal feeling if i do have a serious issue? how will this affect my sex life? please help im very concerned and thank you.

Hi, around 6 weeks ago I had unprotected sex with my (then) girlfriend. A few days after, I noticed a small wart like spot on my penis which went away after 4-5 days. I have now noticed though that I have a yellow-white discharge from my penis which sometimes has a little blood in it. What could this be?
