Lumps In The Anal Area But Not Painful?
I ask, there is a lump near my rectum, but it doesn’t feel anything, and it doesn’t hurt. What’s that? Please answer
A lump in the rectal area can be caused by a variety of factors. Usually this condition is often associated with hemorrhoids, or what is medically known as hemorrhoids, because this condition most often occurs in complaints of lumps in the anus. Hemorrhoids are enlarged blood vessels around the anus that arise due to the habit of straining, carrying heavy objects, and bowel movements are not smooth. However, in addition to hemorrhoids, there are also several possibilities that manifest as lumps in the anus, namely:
Anal abscess, which is an infection in the anal area, anal cancer, anal warts, rectal prolapse, which is the part of the intestine that comes out of the anus, perineal hematoma or bruising around the anus. Lumps in the anal area should be examined even if they have not caused complaints of pain, bloody stools and so on. This is to prevent the disease from spreading before it gets to a difficult stage. Consumption of fiber from fruits and vegetables, and make sure the adequacy of water at least 2-3 liters per day. Further on this topic, we attach an article about hemorrhoids. May be useful.
