Brief Answer:
May be an external skin tag

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for writing in

Unfortunately the information passed is inadequate

Are you constipated ?
Is there any perianal itching ?
Is the flesh reducible or it stays outside ?
If reducible, does it reduce by self or you need to reduce it ?
Is it soft, firm or hard ?

Most likely it is an external skin tag, yet I will be in a better position to justify if you pass on this information

Hi,
Thanks for your quick answer.
Are you constipated ? no
Is there any perianal itching ? as I go swimming in the sea every day I have some very little feelings due to sand or salt. During the year, I often feel the need to wash my anus in the morning as it feels to be cleaned.
Is the flesh reducible or it stays outside ? it is reducible
If reducible, does it reduce by self or you need to reduce it ?
If I push it inside it will reduce.
Is it soft, firm or hard ? It is soft
I can feel it just when I shower the anus with soap.
May be I coud put some sort of cream to make it more confortable , exercise more and get more fibers or just let it go.
Regards,
T.

Brief Answer:
Just let it go and observe

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for the detailed information

I think it would be wise to leave it alone and observe for any increase in size, irreducibilty and bleeding

In the mean time take a sitz bath twice a day for three weeks, yes adding fiber will surely help

DO keep me posted with the happenings
Wishing you a healthy life ahead
