Contact of penis with external haemorrhoid

A guy's glans penis (with precum) came in contact with my anus, where I have an external haemorrhoid (not bleeding). Is that a risky event for me? I understand that contact of contaminated fluids with the rectal/anal mucosa can be risky, am I right? Thank you.

No, this is not a risk.  The ONLY ways adults get HIV is to have unprotected (with penetration and without condom) vaginal or anal sex (all the way in, not touching the external area) or sharing IV drug needles.  Air inactivates the virus.  So, what you describe is ZERO risk.
