A Lump In The Anus That Doesn’t Drain Pus?
it seems like I have an anal abscess, but I don’t feel any other symptoms of anal abscess such as a fever that is draining pus and others just a lump. So is it true that I have an anal abscess?
Hello Naura, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Anus lump is not always caused by an anal abscess. Anal abscess is the appearance of a pus-filled pocket in the anus that occurs due to blockage of the glands in the anus and infection in the area. Although it can cause a lump in the anus, an anal abscess will cause other symptoms such as pain in the lump, swelling in the area around the lump, redness of the skin around the lump, fever, and may come out of pus if the abscess has burst.
The most common cause of lumps in the anus is hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids. Haemorrhoids can occur due to dilation or enlargement of the veins in the anal area. This dilation of blood vessels can occur due to several things, including:
Straining too hard during bowel movements or during labor
Obesity or excess body weight
Having sexual intercourse through the anus
Other causes of lumps in the anus that are less common include anal fistulas, condyloma (warts), rectal prolapse (large intestine that protrudes from the anus), or cancer of the anus.
To be able to ascertain the cause, you should check with your doctor directly. The doctor will perform a direct physical examination of your anus to determine the cause of the lump. Therapy can vary depending on the cause found on the examination.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
