It is my pleasure to help you,
As you are having a Lump in the anus, the location of the lump in the anus is very important in this case.
As you are telling lump is blue in color and lies outside the anus all the time it may be a prolapse (Intestinal coil coming out of the anus) or it my be a sebaceous cyst.
I would advise you to consult the surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment.
As such medicine can be given if you are having any pain while passing the stool or if you are passing blood in the stool.
Proper history and examination is required. Don't delay approach your treating surgeon.
Hope you have understood your problem.
Thank you.
