In brief: More likely

Hemorrhoid. It is more likely to be external hemorrhoid/pile.
It would be prudent to get it checked out and treated.

In brief: Skin tag, hemorrhoid

It could be many things-- skin tag, external hemorrhoids, perianal abscess etc.
The risk for you to have anal cancer- at your age- is low. See your md and have it examined, if it bothers you.
