Depends on what the cause of the lump is.

If it is anal warts, yes it can be contagious.

If it is a painful lump indicating an infection of the glands under the skin then it may be contagious if someone comes in direct contact with it.

If it is any other lump that is not caused by a bacteria or a virus then it is not contagious.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.

If I f**ked someone with penianal lump, how can I now prevent myself from getting anything on my penis? Pls read the letter given by the doctor and advice me. Thank you.
Dermatologist: Dr. SH, Physician replied 1 year ago

Thank you for your response.

I am very sorry for my late response.

This lump seems VERY UNLIKELY to be contagious.

This does not seem likely to be any STD.

I would not worry.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
