Hemorrhoids - Symptoms and causes - Mayo Clinic
Hello, this is a rather embarrassing question I realize but I'd really like to know what is the skin growth that is on my anus. I saw a doctor and he said it was not any form of an STD, but he only looked at it for maybe 20 seconds. A friend told me it's probably an external hemmeroid but he wasn't sure. Can anyone tell me what this is?
A perianal haematoma can be distinctly uncomfortable, and may leave you feeling worried or embarrassed, as well as in pain. A perianal hematoma is a blood blister that collects in the tissue surrounding the anus, similar to when you trap or hit your thumb with a hammer. It is usually caused by a ruptured or bleeding vein that occurs when the bowels are opened, and it only occurs on the outside of the anus, as opposed to being an internal issue.
It contains a low-pressure retention balloon at the distal end and a connector for attaching the collection bag at the other end. The stool management system provides containment and diversion of stool, which is of liquid or semi liquid consistency. When used in patients with stool incontinence, it helps to keep the skin clean and dry and free from contaminants and moisture that contribute to skin breakdown. It minimizes spread of infection by keeping infectious body waste contained in a closed system. Stool management system aids in the prevention and protection of perianal and sacral pressure areas.
