Something near my anus

Iím 34 male. On Monday I felt pain near my anus. On touching I found that itís a small lump. Itís soft and I donít feel pain on it but I do feel a bit of pain in my buttocks. Iím not constipated but it takes me a while to poop, always have since childhood. Sometimes I poop 3-4 times per day (Iím a vegetarian).

Hereís a picture of it: (graphic picture, Iím quite hairy down there).

Can anyone please let me know what this is? Thanks!

Could be an abscess. You should see your GI

Just guessing here but Pilonidal Cyst? My daughter had one. They are usually further up but the surgeon told us they could appear anywhere. I would get it checked out.
