In brief: Not necessarily
Some other problems can cause a lump in the anus.
Most of the time benign reasons like hemorrhoids, fistulas, abscesses, cysts. There are also so e other conditions like rectal or anal cancer than can produce this. You better have it checked by your doctor.

In brief: Likely
A hemorrhoid can be thrombosed (filled with blood) and thus harden and present as a firm lump outside of the anus.
These usually resolve on their own. If you do not have improvement after a week, i would see your doctor.
