I noticed just the other day that I have a small, (about a cm wide) soft, whitish lump around my anus. It doesn't feel like there's anything under the skin like a knot or pus. It's more like the skin is inflamed for some reason. I have no bleeding or real pain with this and there is only a slight itch, more like an annoying irritated feeling. I have no idea what this is and I'd really like some info on what this may be. Also I am a straight male so I've never had any kind of anal sex. I know this seems gross but I'm clueless as to what this may be. Could this be something serious or life-threatening? Can someone help me out here?
