Can someone please help! Hard lump by rectum!

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey everyone!

I’m new here. Well monday was taking a shower and cleaning myself and felt a hard bump on my bottom. I’m a hypercondriac so I immediately got out of the shower and started examing! I’m a nurse and have noooo idea what one earth this is! I have an appointment tomorrow but I’m so worried. I’ve been doing warm compress for a couple of days now and it doesn’t go down at all! It also doesn’t get bigger. What scares me is that it is like rock hard! I thought it was a pimple at first and I know I shouldn’t have but I tried with all my might go pop it and it didn’t budge. All it did was cause a teeny little dot of blood to come out! Any ideas??? Pictures attached! It’s doesnt itch or burn but it doesn’t hurt when touch and I can feel it when I walk. It feels like there’s pressure in my rectum. Any help is greatly appreciated!

      Yeah I’m going today at 10 am I will let y’all know what she says. Also I woke up today and of course it has gone done significantly! Never fails when I finally head to the doctor everything’s fine again. It’s just crazy to me that I was able to get something on my rectum? Also I wrote that it didn’t hurt I meant it does hurt when touched and is very tender

    There are 4 icons at top right of the reply box across from your name. The scenery icon furthest to the right is the one you need, but the icons don't always appear on phones or tablets. If you don't see them, try selecting Desktop Mode from your browser menu dropdown list. If you still don't see them, you'll have to transfer the photos to a computer. In the computer browser, log in to Patient.info and hit reply in this thread. The icons should now be visible. Click on the scenery icon (4th one on the right) and you can then upload photos from your files.
