General Surgeon 's  Response

it is best if you consult with a general surgeon with regards to your anal lesion. yes, it could be an anal papilla, but there are also other possibilities like hemorrhoids, abscess, fistula, etc. a complete medical and physical examination from your doctor will be of great help. management (medical or surgical if indications are found) will be directed accordingly.

hope this helps.

good day!!
