White bump by my anus entrance.

This answer was rated:

I got this white bump right by my anus entrance that I just felt while in the shower. It doesn't hurt or anything but I did find out recently I am lactose intolerant so been having bathrooms problems before hand.

I am online and happy to help you with your question today.
Is it at painful?
How long has it been present?
Also, is it mobile, kinda flat, hard, soft etc?
Its not painful at all and I have no clue how long because I just seen it today while in the shower. It was soft when I touched and moved around a bit while I touch it.

RickMD :
ok. Got it. Let me look at the picture.

Good news. That is nothing to worry about. ( By the way, how did you get such a clear picture of such a difficult area to photograph?)

That is a small hemorrhoid. Nothing to worry about.

If it is not bothering you it requires no treatment.
I guess my camera focused at the right time as i snapped because it took me 20 tries to get this good. Okay thanks so does it go away by its self or what if starts to bother me?

I guess that's what I felt a twice a couple days ago but paid no mine to it because i thought just cause I was lactose intolerant that you know what was coming out as I ran to the bathroom.

RickMD :
They might go away but usually you will have them from now on. If they bother you there are many, many things that can be done from just simply using a cream such as preparation H to surgery.

It has nothing to do with your lactose intolerance.

Here is a great article on home care:
What I meant was does the white bump just stay there?

RickMD :
But, the good news is that it is nothing to worry about.

It may go away, then come back.......bazillions of people around the world have 'em. Not related to a STD or anything at all other then a poor design of the venous vascular system by the entity that manufactured us humans.......
Okay thanks for the help

RickMD :
My pleasure. Have a good day.
