Having dark bump at edge of anus, itchy, pain after ejaculating. Prostate cancer?

Hello, I am a 21 year old male and have just noticed a dark bump (pea sized) located on the edge of my anus . I have had moderate to severe itching for the past couple of months. I also have been experiencing pain in that area while sitting for long periods of time or even after ejaculation . I have also had trouble using the bathroom ( frequent urination and not feeling as though I have completed my bowel movements). Prostate cancer runs in the family, so this is fairly worrisome. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for posting,

From your description you are not having prostate cancer (your age also keeps you out of that possibility) and your symptoms do not mean you have prostate cancer.
You need to get the lump examined by a doctor as I can not tell for sure what the bump is except I can see and examine it. You might be having an external hemorrhoid or an anal polyp. You also seem to have a urinary tract problem. You also need to get your urine examined for UTI.

Hope this helps
