I've noticed white bumps around my anus and im concerned that they could be either gential herpes or genital warts, however after closer inspection i realized i have a hemorrhoid. could these white bumps be somehow related to the hemorrhoid?

Anal bumps: Tiny white bumps around the anus are likely warts, herpetic lesions, or molluscum contagiosum. There are other possibilities also. Hemorrhoids are going to be located right at the anal margin and can be skin colored or darkened if they are painful and filled with blood clots.
