Hi
Anal or perineal “lumps” may be due to a wide range of conditions including condyloma, molluscum contagiosum, hemorrhoids (thrombosed, tags or prolapsed), polyps, sentinel tags related to fissure, or cancer. Full assessment, including a detailed history, inspection, palpation, anoscopy and, in some cases, biopsy, sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy, is needed to define the exact nature of these lesions.
