About a week or a week and a half ago, I noticed a small pea sized lump right on the rim of the opening of my anus. It is not painful and it does not discharge any liquids/blood. There is only slight discomfort when I touch it or when I wipe after a bowel movement. I am 16 years old and I do not have any rectal/colon problems. I looked up possible things on the internet and one thing i found was that it could be a perianal hematoma. If it is that, will it just go away by itself, and is there anything I have to do to take care of it?
