I have a painless oval shaped lump two inches or more below

This answer was rated:

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?
JA: In general, how has your health been lately?

JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nothing.

Hello I'm Dr Chip

How large is it?

Hard or soft?

Tender at all?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It is soft, not tender about the size of a pea.


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
