External Hemorrhoids: Possibly. External hemorrhoids are usually seen around the anus and are painful. Have it checked by your physician to be certain.

Go get checked: It sounds like a hemorrhoid, but no one can tell you what it is without taking a look at it. Don't be embarrassed, just go get checked and put your mind at ease.
