16 and embarrassing lump near anus - anxiety high

Posted , 3 users are following.

I can't believe I'd have to type something like this...but I swear I was fine just the other day, minus my consistently high running stress/anxiety.depression/hypochondria.

But, I checked this morning and felt a strange lump near...there, and upon further inspection noticed it was red both on the lump and around it. It's just to the right of...that place and really embarrassing! I get yelled at for complaining a lot, so I'm afraid to bring it up.

It sometimes hurts if I sit directly on it or push on it, bu I also have been not very active at all the past week, and mainly have been on my bed for at least 23/7.

I don't have a fever or anything, but for the past couple of days until 2 days ago I was fairly constipated. I've convinced myself it's some fatal disease or something. Please help??

    Small update, the skin below this lump feels kinda scrunched, and the lump itself is about the size of the end of my thumb. I'm really worried...

    Henorroid or a fissue or a cyst and why doesnt you mother bring you to the doctor.they will know in a second. If you want to make yourself feel better be sure to shower before bed always, keep that area clean after you use the bathroom and eat foods that help you poop and lots of fresh water.next time you ever go to the doctor bring it up and have them see it. Im confused why yiur oarents dont just bring you to the doctor. Anxiety or nit if its ohysical it should be looked at by a doctor, unless your parents are doctors and they have seen it. I dont know

      I have an awful tendency to complain about every possible medical condition, thinking i have it. So they got annoyed and just won't take me now, haha.

    That sounds like a haemorrhoid (piles), especially if you have a tendency to constipation. You need to get either a doctor or the Practice Nurse to see it, then you can get treatment.

    Totally agree with everyone.. there are a number of creams available from pharmacies that can shrink your haemorrhoid & numbs the discomfort of pain.. Hot bath also helps.. See your GP mcncheri if it gets worse..                                                                                                                                                                                                            Hope you feel well soon - Deb
