i got a sore feeling above my anal cavity about 4 days ago, since then it has
turned into what i might think a boil/very large pimple, a bit painful, hasnt
broken open yet, kind of feels a bit long with a head on one side.
(about 1/2' above my anus. well this morning while showering, felt another one
about the same 1/2' from my anus, more to the side this time. this one seems
smaller. i cant really see, going by feel. I am 48 years old, Male
married with children. Good Hygiene. Thank You..
Only a doc can tell you for sure what you have. See a dermatologist for definitive diagnosis.
It will ease your mind. Could be nothing serious, but something a doc can freeze or nip off.
Genital warts a worry? Highly unlikely that is what these are. I am a survivor of anal cancer, and this skin cancer caused by a virus, HPV, can present with genital warts.
I was told by surgeon who diagnosed me that he thought he saw one, but no other doc had ever mentioned, and I got checked for skin growths regularly. Am guessing it must have been inside anal canal. A non issue now. Only mention as your subject is anal warts.
Off you go to get these growth looked at. Good luck.
