    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?

    For the past week every-time I 'move my bowels' and wipe, I felt a small bit of pain on my anus. So I had a look through a mirror and saw a lump on my anus. I haven't felt it during the day, its only when i go to the toilet. is this piles or is it something else?

    I used to have exactly the same symptoms. I have since had an ovary removed because of severe endo and am soon going to be having a hysterectomy as I too love sport and my stomach pains interfere with that. I am only 32 but have already kids so to me , this is the best option. Good luck

    I have a round tag at the bottom of my anus about the size of a small marble. It is a different colour to the rest of my anus (pink). It doesn't itch or cause any pain. However it makes cleaning after a 'number two' problematic, so I have to take a shower. Saying that I normally take a shower anyway. Re STDs, my wife and I have been married for 22 years and just split up. I have always been faithful and so has she - apparently. I am worried whether this could be a cancerous cyst.

    Hi, it sounds like a skin tag or a haemorhoid but it could be the start of an abcess, you need to see a doctor. Highly unlikely that it's cancer though.

    I think i may have a skin tag on my anus, i have suffered from piles since i was around 14, occassionally loosing a lot of frank blood during bowl motions, a colonoscopy showed internal piles and anusol cream was prescribed, i have used this cream intermitantly for years but this seems different to the inflammed piles..... a lump around 1cm with a thin attatchment to the anus, with itching and pain, should i see GP or try to tie it off with string...

    Hi, I suffer from IBS but recently it has hurt to use the loo as I get a sharp knife like pain in my anus when i retract my muscles. I frequently have a almost clear gel from my anus when i wipe. I have had a hard sore lump on the outside for a long time but never thought anything of it as i assumed it was just the way my anus was but now I'm beginning to become worried. After coming home from work early due to this knife like pain that I've had for the past week or so, I have used a latex glove to feel just inside where the pain is coming from. It appears to be like a reasonably hard lump with like a very sore opening between that and the wall that it is clinging too. What could it be and what should I do, I would prefer to see a specialist rather than my GP

    Hi, i have the same thing. I had a baby 6 months ago and have had problems going to the toilet ever since, i went back to my GP today and got examined as my problems were getting worse and not better despite changing my diet to a high fibre one. The doctor told me that i have an ANAL FISSURE, including tears/cuts in my rectum and piles, also swollen glands on the outside of the anus. When i try to go to the toilet i have to really strain and the sharp knife like feeling is the stools/poo rubbing along the exising tears which is not helping it to heel. I have been percribed an ointment and some bowel opening medicine - the doctor told me that the stools/poo needs to be water like diahorea in order for the tears/cuts to heal. There is some light at the end of the tunnel, in the mean while drink plenty of water and get back to the GP for them to check you out, you sound like what i have.

    I have a red rash around my anus and have had 50 different diagnosis,. One said maybe psoriasis. Other said intertrigo, other said yeast. It is just around my anus. Peels every once in a while. No pain or itch. Just inflamed red. Any thoughts?

    Get referred to a skin specialist via a gp for proper diagnoses..

    I have been to skin specialist. All those were dermatologist.first told me possible psoriasis, but not evident enough to label if. Second said intertrigo. Third said yeast. When I done a yeast test it came back negative.

    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!!

    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 there, im a bit worried about what i think is skin tags on my anus and side of my vagina. I only noticed one of them about 3months ago and all off a sudden my anus is now covered with them. It seems like there appearing very fast. They dont cause any pain they just bleed when i go to the toliet and feel a bit scabby. I do not want to see my GP as im a bit nervous. Im 20 and have not had any kids. Can you let me know if this sounds normal and if there is any treatment you would advise. Thanks Siobhan

    My best guess would be that you have thrush. It is usually easily treated and very common. Struggling to go to the loo would be unrelated to that if I am correct. It has been a while since you left this posting, so I hope you found some help, but if not, you can buy thrush treatment at your chemist, over the counter.
