Haven't been on for a while. Hope everyone is well.
I have got myself all worked up and really scared because I have found a small hard lump by my 'back passage' - sort of a soft lump of skin sticking out, and then a hard lump inside. I have up and down bowel habits and regularly have haemorrhoids - wondering if its a thrombosed haemorrhoid, but of course you can't help worrying about anal cancer!!
I have had HPV and use betaferon (supresses the immune system, right?) an apparently using immuno restricting drugs and having a history of HPV infection increases your chances of developing anal cancer. I am also female, another risk factor.
Arrrgh, always bad Idea to look on internet - should have come straight here to ask advice from you guys!
Please help - not sure I will sleep tonight with worry!
