First: Need an exam to be sure what you have. A thrombosed external hemorrhoid is a painful lump at the anal opening from a blood clot in a small vein. They usually resolve in a few days with warm bath soaks and you can try a pain medicine over the counter (ibuprofen, etc.). External thrombosed hemorrhoids can be removed in a doctor's office. Internal hemorrhoids can be banded in a doctor's office.
