Just noticed the lump yesterday. It has being itchy on the outside maybe past while but I didn't pass any marks on that, I was out at the wkend and Sunday I never ate much so was dehydrated and I maybe was on the toilet a bit and maybe straining. There is no blood, it just looked like a white lump attached to inside of my anus when I had finished my bowel movement. I just have asthma that's all, this is the first I have experienced this

Hello,

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,you feel a lump in anus that you noticed during wiping after a bowel movement and went away back suggests internal hemorrhoid,Anal skin tag.

Hemorrhoids are swollen, inflamed veins around the anus.

Anal skin tags don't cause symptoms until it get irritated with hard stools, tight fitted clothes.A skin tag is normally flesh colored. Most patients will notice such lump when they wipe themselves.

Firstly you should do some physical exercises.

Take Metamucil.

Eat fibre rich diet.

Avoid spicy food, caffeine.

Keep yourself hydrated with plenty of fluids.

Avoid straining during defecation.

Use a sitz bath with warm water.

Avoid long periods of sitting.
Use moist towelettes or wet toilet paper.

Try prep H ointment to relieve itching.

The only way to determine what this is the have your doctor examine you for further evaluation and management.
I hope this helps.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
Waiting for your response.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

I'm a very fit guy I play football at a high level train 3/4 times a week. Does the fact that it's a white lump mean anything more serious? I get very paranoid about stuff like this lol I will do as you say, also is this a common issue?

thank you very much for getting back so quick, just something rather not go see doctor with if needs but if its serious and I need to I will
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 8 months ago.

Sorry for all the questions. Is it normal while I have this that my stomach feels like cramps, as if I need to go for a number 2 and then when I go not much happens. When I do go it feels as if knife is sticking into my while the lumps starts to push out, feels as if it's blocking the passage?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Also when I sneeze or cough I can feel it Espec after I go to the toilet
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 8 months ago.

You can try OTC Mylanta gas and metamucil.

These can be intestinal spasms.

Hope this helps.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I uploaded a picture, is that what your saying it is? Nothing has changed since Monday
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 8 months ago.

It's hemorrhoid.

And you should see a proctologist for further evaluation and management.

Take OTC Mylanta gas as there can excessive intestinal gas production which results in cramps.

Take OTC Motrin.

Hope this helps.
