Haemerroid or something worse?

Just feeling a bit panicky. In shower tonight have found a small lump near or possibly on anus. About pea size. Itches a bit. Hurts very slightly when I press on it but certainly not very painful.

I'm not pregnant, I haven't had constipation or anything.

The thing that is worrying me is I have a vague memory that I found this a few months ago - I know this sounds silly but was in the middle of house move/ very stressed at time and think I thought "I'd better keep an eye on that, maybe it's a haemerroid?" Then totally forgot until noticing it again now.

Do haemeroids hang around that long or come/ go in same place? Could it be a more sinister lump? I'm lying in bed now worrying about it!

Don't worry! What you're describing sounds exactly like piles. Oh the glamour eh?

Yes they can go and then come back!!

Thank you both! I have since been informed that they can be hormone related and i just got my period today so that sort of makes sense.

I have been to our village chemist and informed the pharmacist and the 3 socially distanced others in the shop that I needed pile cream and fibre gel. The glamour indeed!
