    It could either be a haemorrhoid or a skin tag, which is what gets left behind once a haemorrhoid clears.

      Thank you.. I'm quite relieved now and will make an appointment with a GP on Monday. I should have added that it appeared suddenly at the end of my pregnancy so I just assumed it was haemorrhoid but should have asked the gp straight away and save myself all the worry..

      Thanks again
