I have read many articles about this lump I have on the outside of my anus. I am 50, and when I was younger had hpv. I have several of the symptoms they describe. Discharge, itching, discoloration, sever pain during a movement. This showed up around 4 weeks ago. It does not look or feel like any hemoroid. I am not insured. And know I should get it checked but am I being paranoid.
