I've recently discovered 4...

I've recently discovered 4 little small white bumps around my anal sphincter and maybe 1 or 2 inside the beggining of my anal canal. I'm very worried. I haven't had bleeding in my stools or any discomfort, i dont even feel like i have them unless I purposely touch them. They are smaller than a pea, very small and grey-ish white. I am a male who had unprotected anal sex 4 months ago but my partner was tested negative. Please what can you tell me about what I have ?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Yes. My health is very good although I often have digestive problems but im pretty sure its because I dont eat at regular time and my diet is terrible. I skip meals, eat out all the time, or sometimes dont even eat at all.

Oh really thank you, that's reassuring, but is it normal that I feel some of them on the inside when I insert the tip of my finger ?

yes, that is very normal

have them looked at to be sure but I think they are nothing

I highly doubt any warts or cancer

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
