Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Are you able to post a picture? Is it on the anal area?

A boil bursts and goes away in time, since it is an infected area. A wart is white or pink and cauliflower in appearance. Moles can be black. A hemorrhoid that has been clotted off or thrombosed can also be black.

If you can post a photo, it helps.
