Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. A picture in this situation is worth a thousand words. Any chance of taking a picture of the area and posting it?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Actually I am at work and I am not able to provide a picture
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can we chat instead
Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 9 months ago.

That is ok. I'm not set up for a chat situation. If it is good for you, you can post a picture later when you get home after work. I'm going to be on and off here all day and all day tomorrow too. As far as this knot, could it be an anal gland issue? Could it be a growth of sorts - in this area anal sac carcinomas can happen and they are pretty bad. Could it be some sort of perineal hernia? Could it be a more benign growth like a lipoma? These are all considerations going through my mind.

Ok I'll try to take that picture later on when I get home and I'll send it. Thank you
