I noticed some anus pain 3 days ago but didn't really think anything of it. 2 days ago it was still bothering me and I felt a lump that was not quite in my anus, but it wasn't fully on the outside, kind of half and half. It is flesh colored and tender to the touch, and is more aggravating for me when I sit and stand up from sitting. I can notice it virtually all the time. I'm 21 y/o and have never been diagnosed with hemorroids before/never felt a lump in this area. I've been googling and researching my symptoms and am really hoping this is indeed an external hemorrhoid and not an abscess. Does it sound like it could be an abscess? I dont have the means of reaching a doctor for a while so I am seeking reassurance that I will be fine if it is left unseen by a professional for that amount of time.
Any reassurance/responses are much appreciated to put my mind at ease!! thank you
