Itchy lump on anus

Last week i discovered a small inside (but very near the outside) of my anus. It seems to be a fairly firm lump and dose not go away when squeezed lightly. It seems to be normal skin colour. Recently it started becoming itchy. Should i be concerned? Should i go see a doctor about it?

Thanks

If it's under the skin, and hard then yes you should see your doctor.  It may be a hemmorrhoid, which do swell and itch.  But this doesn't sound like one, but itching would not be a part of any type of tumor or anything like that.  You could try using a Cortizone cream bought over the counter for the itch.  It may be something that is remaining inflammed due to you scartching it.  Use this everyday, and if after a week it isn't any better then see your doctor.  Hemorrhoids are notorious for itching, so this may be the problem.  Take care...
