I am.bramd new to this group. 12 days ago I developed a sudden hard grape sized lump at anal opening starting about an inch up. Looks and feels different than hemorrhoids I have had in the past. I have a j-pouch for 2 years now. I have frequent itchy fissures which adds to this new problem. Doc at emerg said probably a hemorrhoid. I think not. Sitz baths and Anusol HC doing nothing. Witch hazel pads do nothing. This is not shrinking at all and the pressure is very uncomfortable. Appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks Scott. You may be right. I also had questionable diagnosis of Crohn's, UC or indeterminate colitis. I had mouth ulcers and mild inflammation through stomach which labelled me Crohn's in 2008. The pathology on colectomy looked more like UC.  I have a gastroenterologist who is new to me.  My last one was angry at me for pursuing a jpouch and we just didn't see eye to eye. I am shocked at how few doctors know anything about a jpouch construction. I always feel like the educator. My surgeon is great but away on holiday. He emailed me that he doesn't want anyone digging around in there in case it is pouch prolapse. I hope to see him next week. Will post an update soon.
