I posted this in Anal Cancer and Hemorrhoids, too, but thought I'd ask here, too, just in case one of you who frequently answer questions here might have a helpful in sight.
I'm a 47 year old male, and while cleaning in the shower today, I felt a bump just inside the anal canal basically on the other side of the sphincter. As bumps go, it felt decently large already like maybe the size of half a Tic Tac or something. Although, maybe it wasn't that big and I was miscalculating its size. I don't know how long it's been there, but my cleaning procedures are always the same so I feel I probably would have noticed it had it been there awhile so perhaps it's a fairly new development. Many oh, many, many years ago I did have a thrombosed hemorrhoid, and I do fairly frequently have blood on the toilet paper for what that's worth. Anyways, I have anxiety disorder so I really want to trip out about this, and I can't go straight to the doctor until an appointment is made so I thought I would ask here to see if anyone is answering questions on this forum and may have some insight. Thank you
