Symptoms of external hemorrhoids may include painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus that results when a blood clot forms. This condition is known as a thrombosed external hemorrhoid. Or you could have the beginnings of a boil with no pain yet, especially in the summer months its very easy to get them. Since there is no pain I would just monitor it and see if it worsens or gets bigger, if you get a fever, but a boil will begin to hurt and you even may get a fever, but if there is no pain, I would just monitor it for now, of course if it restricts you from a bowel movement then I would suggest going to the doc.

I doubt if it is serious, just keep monitoring it and if it gets worse or you have symptoms with it, then see a doctor.

Quarter size is a good size.  Sounds like either a cyst or a hemorrhoid.  I would have it assessed if it persists and/or increases in size with pain, drainage, etc.  Try to keep this area as clean as possible; great spot for an infection to start.  Avoid clothing that could aggravate it.
