This is easy excised in the office, if you r doc does it, which can relief your pain quickly. If not, topical steroid mixed with Lidocaine such as anapram can help quite a bit.

I have a dark blue-purple spot on part of my anus and it doesn't bother me at all, but I just don't understand what it is.

An exam of the perianal area/rectal during the same visit will probably answer your question. ...Read more

Do hemorroid cause anal fisura? I have a hemorroid internal, anal itch, and now I have opening spot in anus, burns when I wash, no bleed but is open
No: Hemorrhoids are enlarged veins at the anal opening. A fissure is a tear in the lining of the skin of the anal canal. A hemorrhoid does not cause a fissure, but straining to have hard constipated bowel movements can cause both hemorrhoids or fissure. You cannot tell yourself on self-examination what you may have, and it needs a physical examination with a physician to tell. ...Read more

Yes: That is a common effect of low dose Aspirin due to the inhibition of blood platelets. If your hypertension is well controlled it can still happen but is more likely if not controlled. As one gets older the skin gets thinner and capillaries get more fragile and tear easier which makes these bruises appear more often. ...Read more

As I mentioned, lesions, benign or malignant, are best examined by a clinician to provide you with a definitive answer ...Read more
