Question: I have a lump that is getting larger over the last few days. It is very close to the anus. I don't know if this is related, but I strained my groin area pretty severely in a kayak mishap last Friday. My right leg was thrown out in a very bad position. Causing redness in my inner thigh and a strain to the groin area that is bruised looking now. And also having pain in the lower right abdomen area. I am Male Caucasian 54.

This is possible abscess and you should see proctologist for further evaluation since it should be surgically treated in some cases.
