Most likely.: You've probably got a hemorrhoid that you can see. Although there are other explanations and ideally you want to have a doctor take a look to make sure that's all it is. Best to you!

Hemorrhoid: You have a hemorrhoid. This is a common human experience and is in reality a blood clot in one of the rectal veins. If it is not bleeding or causing pain then it should just reabsorb and you will be fine.

Yeast infections: Yeast or Candida can cause irritating symptoms like you describe. I wonder 'where' the doctors found the thrush - in your mouth? If that's true, I would want to look for the 'cause' -such as pre-diabetes, dry mouth, medications (inhalers?) or other diseases. A purple lump could be a hemorrhoid, as Candida or yeast should be more reddish. Both can itch. There's definitely treatment-hope u see a doc

Try a hemorrhoid gel: This is most likely a hemorrhoid. That has thrombosed - developed a clot in a swollen vein around the rectum. Try conservative treatment 1st - lubricate the bump with gel, take stool softeners, eat more fiber, drink more water, take warm baths, use over the counter pain pills, take daily walks or other exercises. If it doesn't resolve, surgical excision of the hemorrhoid may be the best treatment.

What's the difference between rectal abcess and hemorrhoid in anal area? I have a lump at anus, its very sore and looks bit purple/black at end.

What's the difference between rectal abcess and hemorrhoid in anal area? I have a lump at anus, its very sore and looks bit purple/black at end.

Difference: Hemorrhoids are painful, swollen veins in the lower portion of the rectum or anus. A rectal abscess is an infection and a collection of pus in the area of the anus and rectum. Both can be painful, lead to swelling, redness, etc. So without an exam it tough to say if you have a hemorrhoid, a thrombosed hemorrhoid, or a rectal abscess. Either way. Gt checked as they all need to be treated. Good luck

I have these purple/blue colored soft lumps/areas around my anus. They hurt a little bit and show more with strain. Hemorrhoids or something else?

I have these purple/blue colored soft lumps/areas around my anus. They hurt a little bit and show more with strain. Hemorrhoids or something else?

External hemorrhoids: It sounds very much like external hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids have pain fibers. They do get worse with straining or if you're constipated. Things that can help include not straining when you have a bowel movement, staying very well hydrated with water, and not sitting on the toilet to read a magazine or a book or playing with your phone when you're having a bowel movement.

I was constipated the next day I had a tender purplish red lump protruding from my anus, the size of a small grape. Is it a hemroid? What do I do?

I was constipated the next day I had a tender purplish red lump protruding from my anus, the size of a small grape. Is it a hemroid? What do I do?

Hemorrhoids: Yes you probably have hemorrhoids. There are a number of over the counter medications that can help. They typically worsen after straining such as you describe with constipation. See your doctor if this one persists or becomes painful.

Genital warts or hemorrhoids? Around my anus it turns purple, and has about two purple bumps/lumps around, it started itching, and now itches more than before. I've noticed when I look in the mirror and push the bumps comes out bigger. How can I know if I

This sounds: Like hemorrhoids, either internal and/or external and does not sound like genital warts at all. Caffeine causes the itching and makes you constipated, having to push and thus hemorrhoid symptoms. Eliminate all caffeine and alcohol and drink 80-100 oz fluids per day. See a colorectal surgeon if this does not resolve.

I have a small purplish bump on the outside of my anus. Is this a hemorrhoid?

Purpulish: Bumps on the external anus, especially if it is tender can be a thrombosed (clotted vein) hemorrhoid. These are treated by releasing the thrombus by a Doctor

Had small painful "bump" inch above anus 3 months ago. Opened up and bled when wiping. Now it is healed and flat but whitish purple color. Crs says not fistual. Cancer?

Inflammation: Painful bumps above the rectum that bleed and then heal over leaving a scar are generally boils (infection in the skin, usually staph that after draining heal). Some people are more prone to such boils if they eat a lot of chocolate or eat a lot of sweets. Cancer is very unlikely.
