Last night my bottom (near the hole) felt like it had been cut. Well it was still hurting all day today and I've just had a shower and while washing down there, I felt a lump. A VERY PAINFUL lump JUST above the butt hole (sorry!) and I'd have NO idea what it is or what it could be but it's painful and worrying.

Could it possibly have been a cut that has now gotten infected and caused a lump?

Please, if you have any information or suggestion, I really would appreciate it!

I didn't know where to post this.

I have never had a hemorrhoid so I don't know for sure if it could possibly be one but I don't think they start out feeling like a cut. You would get more helpful information on that from someone who has had one before.
The only other thing I can think of would be a small tear from sex. Either anal sex or maybe he slipped and it tore you. Did you have sex within a day or so before noticing what felt like a cut?

I had terrible hemorrhoids during pg. That tiny lump is a swollen blood vessel that's sticking out to relieve pressure. You can try preparation H (yes... it really works ... try the disposable wipes if you don't want to use the cream), and you should also eat LOTS of fiber for a week or so until the swelling goes down. They're caused by pressure... either from straining too hard from constipation or from the added pressure of a baby (which is why they're so common in the 3rd trimester).

EDIT - If you have high blood pressure, talk to your doctor before using PrepH. It's designed to restrict the vessels and reduce swelling. In someone with high blood pressure, that might be a problem.
