Hello, the other day I felt a little pain around my anus. When I looked I saw a pinkish white hard lump the size of a pea right outside my anus. Thinking it was hemorrhoid I went and bought prep H and have been using it for about a week and nothing has changed with the lump. It doesn t hurt, doesn t itch but it s not going away. Should I go see a doctor about it? Age:29 female 5 6 135lbs
