I have a small, soft, painless, lump on the outside of my rectum. I only notice it when I bear down to deficate. What could it

Posted by casey5

I was recently using the restroom and I reached down to feel my rectum and I noticed a soft, painless lump, right on the outside of my rectum.  I becomes prominent only when I bear down.  What could it be and what is the harm that it could cause me if left untreated.  I am an 18 yr old male and I don't want to go to the doctor b/c my health insurance is with my parents and I will need to tell them that I have an appointment and they will want to know why and I am embarrised to tell them.

Please help!!!
