Please don't: We don't recommend putting your finger in your anus, even when constipated. However, if you are feeling a lump in that area, you should have that checked out by a doctor. Lumps and bleeding should not be ignored. Could be an abscess or a thrombosed hemorrhoid.
Recommend you see a physician.
