Lump on anal opening

I have a very soft, pea sized painless lump of mass outside my anal opening since few years. Never had irritation, pain or bleeding of any kind. Is it a matter of concern?

Hi.... Unless it causes pain and any other symptoms you need not be worried.... Keep the anal area clean. Bathe (preferably) or shower daily to cleanse the skin around your anus gently with warm water.... Don't use dry toilet paper. To help keep the anal area clean after a bowel movement, use moist towelettes or wet toilet paper that doesn't contain perfume or alcohol....
