Hmmm. . .without seeing it I can't be 100% sure but I can give you some suggestions as to what it might be--

1. It could be a skin tag (can be easily removed)

2. If it is closer to your anal area it could be a hemorrhoid (if it is itchy or bothersome to you a treatment called Annusol which can be bought over the counter might help as well as soaking in warm water)

3. It could be genital warts caused by the virus HPV (human papilloma virus)-- the same virus that causes body warts. You can see your doctor to have various treatments done to remove this (some can even be done at home)

 

Those are just some of the ideas I had by the way you described it. . .

ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX think it is anything serious?
Expert:  Dr. Zach replied 6 years ago.
I can't say for sure without looking at it. . .but based on the way you described it, it sounds small and like it is likely just a skin tag or a genital wart. If your doctor can't easily tell what it is just by looking at it, he or she can always send it off to the pathologist for review to make sure it isn't anything serious :) Take care!
