Customer Question
barely detectable, non painfuiopea size...
I discovered while cleaning the area that I had a slight, barely detectable, non painfuiopea size bump on inside of anus about a week ago. Today on the outside, next to anus there is a larger lump external that is more uncomfortable than painful. I'm 43 yr old male, no history of any issues but do have cancer in the family. Should I immediately see a doctor about this, wait a week and see if it resolves? If I am to see a doctor, should I see a GP or a proctologist?Thanks in advance

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
