Hard lump in anus
I have a lump in anal opening on a single side. When applying oinment able to feel it and having mild pain when touching it. Have consulted around 4 doctors till now and there is no improvment in the lump. The size remains the same. I don't have any sensation of having the lump when doing regular activities. In 2016 I had a fissure which was normal in a week and in 2019 it started with a fissure but I had reccurent fissure and proctitis and in March 2020 I had this lump which was very painful in the beginning and was difficult to pass stool after having some medications prescribed by doctor the pain reduced but now my question is on the lump. Will that be any serious condition . Doctors are only prescribing medicines but I'm having fear on that lump. I need a resolution for the same. Some one please suggest. I'm using cremagel, cremagel h oinment for a long time but no improvement on the lump.

It could just be an anal skin tag, which is harmless. You should still get a proper per rectal examination done and get it diagnosed to relieve the worry.
