A Lump Between The Vagina And Anal Canal That Has Been Around For Years?
Hi, r n r nWhen I was in 6th grade, around 12 years old, I found a small lump between my vagina and anus. The lump was like a small lump of flesh. It doesn’t hurt to the touch and doesn’t have any serious effects. And over the years the size has remained the same and there is absolutely no effect. Because for me it’s not dangerous, I don’t really take it seriously. Not even to tell my parents. However, now that I am 23 years old, the lump looks like it’s a little bigger, but the texture is the same, it doesn’t hurt to touch and it’s not hard, like soft / chewy. Because I feel weird and afraid if there is anything then is my lump actually dangerous? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Between the vagina and anus normally there is no lump. However, even a lump in this area does not always indicate a dangerous condition.
Under normal conditions, a lump between the vagina and anus can form due to congenital variations (congenital birth). Lumps like this generally do not cause complaints (such as itching or pain), but also do not grow.
If you feel that the lump is getting bigger in size, then the following possibilities should also be considered:
Perianal abscess (pus-filled sac that forms as a result of bacterial infection, can appear around the anus) Fistula (an abnormal tube that connects several parts of the body, such as the anus, bladder, or vagina with the outer skin directly) Hemorrhoids (hemorrhoids, swollen veins in anus or distal part of the rectum) Infection, for example genital warts, scabies, genital herpes, folliculitis Hypertrophic scars, keloids (formation of excess scar tissue after inflammation) Benign tumors (eg polyps, cysts) or malignant, etc. You should have your complaint checked directly to doctor so that it can be further identified, whether the lump you are experiencing is dangerous, or not. Treatment can later be done by administering drugs, surgery, or some other medical procedure (according to the cause of the lump).
In the meantime, you shouldn't panic or worry too much. Always keep your genital area and anus clean. Avoid pressing or picking up the lumps that appear excessively. Don't forget, always use clean and soft pants, and don't have risky sex.
Hope this helps ..
