Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand that finding a lump in your anus can be a cause of concern and it is completely understandable that you feel nervous and worried about it. However, it is important to remember that this is a common issue and some medical professionals are trained to help you with this. My recommendation would be to schedule an appointment with your doctor. You do not have to feel embarrassed or ashamed about this. Surgeons and physicians have seen and treated many cases like this before, and they are there to help you. During your appointment, the doctor will likely ask you some questions about your symptoms and medical history, perform a physical exam, and possibly recommend further tests or imaging. It is important, to be honest, and open with your healthcare provider about any symptoms or concerns you have, as this will help them make an accurate diagnosis and provide you with the best possible care. Remember that seeking medical attention is an important step in taking care of your health, and there is no need to feel ashamed or embarrassed about seeking help for this issue.

Thank you.
