Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem

Well, such symptoms can come from a few causes. These are-

1. It can be hemorrhoid. It is a very common issue. It is swollen veins in the lower rectum and anus.

2. It can also be a skin tag, It is a harmless growth that hangs off the skin. A skin tag is normally flesh colored, but it can sometimes have a brownish color.

3. Perianal hematoma or anal vein thrombosis or external hemorrhoidal thrombosis hematoma.

Without examination, it may not be possible to reach precise diagnose, and I hope you understand.
Please get the lump examined. If it is due to hemorrhoids or skin tag, and you have no symptom, then you do not need treatment.

It doesn't sound to be related with any serious issue.

I would suggest, you to get a clinical examination done by your primary doctor.

Hope this helped

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.
