I have a painless oval shaped lump two inches or more below my anus. No itching, no blood. It is just there. It appeared suddenly. I only noticed it when I was in the shower. What could it be?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Excellent

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hello I'm Dr Chip

How large is it?

Hard or soft?

Tender at all?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It is soft, not tender about the size of a pea.

OK

Doesn't sound like anything too serious--not cancer if that were your concern

Considering the location it's likely a totally benign inclusion cyst

These can sometimes go away on there own but if it's bothersome it can easily be removed under local anesthesia

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.

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.
