    Haemorrhoids

    Also known as 'piles', this is a condition where the blood vessels in and around the anus become swollen and inflamed, subsequently forming small lumps. Read more →

    I have always shaved my pubic area, and usually have to do round my anus aswel, I'm used to the odd ingrowing hair on my pubic bone area, and have always managed to get rid of them. But lately I think I have had an outburst of them between my anus and the opening of my vigina, I have a cluster of small, hard lumps, tiny, but theres alot, I can't see them as it's such an awkward area, but I can feel them, and so I can't bring myself to have oral sex for these little lumps. What can I do??

    Hello Dr. Can Piles be not next to the anus? Since last Friday a few painful lumps appeared in my bum, but about 1cm from the actually anus, could this still be haemorrhoids?

    Hi I have what looks like another anus between my anus and scrotum (much nearer my anus). It will expand and contract in line with my anus (if that makes sense),it is about the same diameter as a finger tip but it causes no pain or discomfort at all and ive had it as long as i can remember. What is it? Should I worry about it?

    hi, I had a mirena coil inserted just under 2 months ago, and I've just checked for the strings which I was told to do once a month, only this time I've found some lumps in there and am now worried. I've never had lumps in there before, but I can feel 2 large hard grape sized lumps with one very small one above them, and if I push on them they don't hurt or move, just remain hard and put uncomfortable pressure against the internal wall seperating my vagina from my anus. I'm not sure what these are and think maybe they are something to do with the coil? I was advised it could cause ovarian cysts but nothing like this, which is why I'm concerned. They were not there on my 6 week check up just over a week ago. I have a new partner but there hasn't been any sexual activity yet and none for a few months. What are these lumps?

    I'm 15 and i noticed quite small purple lumps around my anus which get a little bigger and more purple when i push. They aren't painful or itchy but sometimes i notice a little bit of blood on the toilet roll and i don't go to the toilet that much (around twice a week). I'm pretty sure they are haemorrhoids but not sure if they are internal or external. i also have a small skin coloured lump a bit above my anus which isn't painful or itchy or anything, does it sound like a skin tag?? please help.

    I have two small lumps on anus. They are currently not hurting while passing stools but sometimes when stools get hard they pain for few days and get swallon and also bleed. Blood is only few drops dark red, but later on they become small again and pain also relieves. Are these piles and is there any ointment to treat it home. I have also uploaded a photo on your gallery. It is a photo of anus with many hairs and two lumps.

    Hi, I've had a slight problem with my Anus for a few years now. I'm now 23. About 3-4 years ago, I felt a pain while having a poo above my Anus (about an inch or 2 towards my lower back, in the crack) and when I wiped I caught it and it stung like hell..... At first it felt like a spot or something. A week or so later the same thing happened, only this time after wiping I tried to have a good look and feel.(by the way, when I poo, I find myself a comfy position on the loo seat, after spreading my buttcheeks due to the amount of hair down there!) The only way I can describe what I felt, is as if I've split my butt crack and formed another Anus?! It's been there ever since, and occasionally it seeps blood during passing, as if I've pulled it apart again. In between these years, I've had lumps appear from my Anus, suggesting piles, which have come and gone around 3 times. One of those times, around a year ago, I actually saw thick dark red blood in my poo. This worried me at the time, but it was only the once I've bled from my actual Anus.... Please help, as I'm finally worried about my second Anus!!

    Please don't be nervous, scared or worried Neil. No one on here will be able to tell you what your problems is, but I think you know that already. And I also think you know - you should make a trip to see your own Doctor. Just think after the initial embarrassment of telling your Doctor - you should with his/her help get the diagnoses & treatment you need. Just think how much better you will feel, once you know just what your problem is. Good Luck.

    often being too clean can make things worse,but if your sexually active to be on the safe side you need to get it checked by a doctor. i know it can be very difficult and embarrassing, i suffered with something from puberty throughout my teen years, im now 22 but im so glad now that ive finally seen a doctor and im getting things sorted. dont make the same mistakes as me, get it seen to soon. the sooner you deal with it, the sooner you can forget about it and get on with your life :)

    warts r up there by the sounds of it, get some cream from the clinic hun

    Hi there, I have had this condition for the last 8 years and only sought medical help in Dec as I had to be hospitalised and had one drained. They never mentioned HS but are testing me for Crohns. I've had 15 lumps since Dec and delt with them myself with sterlilised needle, I find this is best for me as it eases the pressure pain. I'm due to see Drematologist and fingers crossed I'll be a candidate for operation. All my lumps are around my anus but in last few weeks are moving toward my front. Very Embarrassing and my relationship is at stake now.

    I have small lumps around my anus. When I wipe after going to the toilet it itches and I feel the need to wipe harder to give myself a good scratch and often see blood on the tissue where I've wiped then too hard. I can't help it as it feels good at the time. This is the same when I shower and when I'm cleaning my bum as the minute my fingers get close when cleaning I feel the need to give it a good scratch and while it feels so good scratching I make myself very sore and can give myself cuts/tears in the process and make myself bleed. Often after a scratching session in the shower or from wiping if I then go to the toilet it feels sore/stings and might be blood on the tissue again just from where I've scratched too hard and cut myself. I checked myself with a mirror and I don't just have a normal tidy bum hole. there are small lumps or flappy lumps all around the anus. is this piles? does the relief of scratching suggest its piles? Should I be applying some special cream?
