im a 16, male, and white

it seems like one of the glands on the side of my butt has swolen up a little bit, it doesnt hurt unless i clench, or sometimes going to the bathroom. at first it had a solid middle to it, but after squeezing it thinking it would just pop, its just gone soft. its big enough to grab it bewteen 2 fingers..

im sorry for the almost vulgar definition above, but i really rather find out what this is without having to go to the doctor and choke out those words out.

should i be worried?

  • If it is on your anal area it is more than likely a hemrrhoid. Refrain from squeezing and get some over the counter medication. If not on the anal area it could be a boil (really large zit) do not pop it have a doctor remove it. Also if it is hemrrhoids. Eat more fiber and drink water..p.s. don't squeeze so hard when you have a bowel movement!!! :)

  • You should go to a physician and get it checked out could be something serious...mass or tumor??
