I have a hard lump the size of a Lima bean that is starting to protrude from my anus. I took a picture of it. I cannot get an appointment with a proctologist for 3 weeks - terrified!

You have a small and not dangerous external hemorrhoid which is thrombosed.

It's nothing of concern.

If there isn't much pain you can leave it alone, it will go down by itself.

Otherwise your doctor can cut this and drain it.
