Is this a wart in my anus?

Edited , 3 users are following.

that little bump appeared like 2 months ago, when i was constipated and had hard feces for like 5 days. Yesterday i touched my anus and i feel something. it's not painful nor itchy, it's just there. The size has always been the same.

Is this some kind of genital wart?

I'm a male, 21 yo

    I don't really see anything there; it looks like you probably just have hemmorhoids. There's over the counter cream and some diet changes that can help with them but it's harmless otherwise. Hemmorhoids are often associated with constipation and straining while defecating as well.

    That being said, are you currently sexually active and using protection if you are? Always get checked out by a doctor if you have any concerns or worrying changes!

    Hi m913880,

    Hmm...I'm not so sure it's piles (haemorrhoids). It looks suspiciously like a small isolated anal wart.

    Haemorrhoids tend to develop around the anal verge and this lump is too small and a little too far out from the anal verge. It's also not discoloured- piles contain extravasated blood and would look purple.

    I think you'll need a sexual health nurse/doctor to confirm.
