Need a picture: A picture would help a lot - but without this there are a few possibilities. Hemorrhoids are a common problem though these are often painful. Warts can be problem in this are and should be treated so they don't spread. Skin tags are another cause of lumps in the anus. Abscesses also cause lumps in this area but these are usually painful. Have your doctor take a look.
