Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are the most common cause. A hemorrhoid is a bulging vein around the anus. When you strain such as with heavy lifting, constipation or child birth, the vein can dilate so much that it does not snap back into its normal shape.

Lump outside anus. Has had it for more than 4 years, but it will occasionally swell and is very painful at that time. Can you tell what it might be?

Doctor can examine: In a young, healthy person, such a lump may be a hemorrhoid. A primary care doctor can examine the anus, rectum, and lump. If constipated, one pushes higher pressure into the anus and rectum, and the veins can swell up into a lump (called a hemorrhoid) that hurts, itches, burns, and sometimes bleeds. The doctor can offer treatment ideas after the exam. Meanwhile, avoiding constipation is helpful. ...Read more
