should i be worried?
dear doc -i have an embarressing question-about 3 weeks ago i've been experiencing an itch in my anus-area. i bought some anti-fungal cream and have been using it quite regularly. the other day i noticed some blood when i went to the toilet. it also itches when i go to the loo. yesterday i investigated and found a little growth at the opening of my anus. it's nothing major, as big as half a 1c coin. it itches a little but otherwise is normal skin colour and just... there. it's definately not a vein, rather a piece of skin & flesh that was never there.

should i be worried?

It could be a pile. You should have it checked out.
