I have already booked an appointment to see the doctor on Monday but I was hoping someone could please offer some insight or share their experiences?

I am a 30 year old Mum of 1 and have suffered mild hemorrhoids for a few years now. A couple of weeks ago I became aware that my bottom felt quite sore. Apologies on the details but it's the position that has thrown me.

I can feel a longish lump, maybe 3cm long which feels like a sore muscle behind my anus. It is not between the anus and vagina but between the anus and coccyx almost. All I can describe it as is an enlarged muscle. It is underneath the skin and cannot be seen, only felt. 2 nights ago, after a bowel movement, I notice some blood and a little clear mucus when I wiped but nothing else since. (There is sometimes blood when I wipe due to current hemorrhoids). The lump also sometimes feels like its putting pressure into my bottom.

I am scared to death that this is something more sinister as I cannot find reference to it anywhere. Can anyone offer some advice here please?
