Hello, By what I believe to be called the Perineal raphe,

Resolved Question:

Hello,

By what I believe to be called the Perineal raphe, not far from the anus, there is a small yellow looking lump. It may just be the skin as the area is fairly bumpy. Is this normal? I am a male, 28. I do sometimes suffer from itching so thought it might be skin irritation as I am aware that I have had anal fissures before by perfectly matching up symptoms.
