A perianal haematoma can be distinctly uncomfortable, and may leave you feeling worried or embarrassed, as well as in pain. A perianal hematoma is a blood blister that collects in the tissue surrounding the anus, similar to when you trap or hit your thumb with a hammer. It is usually caused by a ruptured or bleeding vein that occurs when the bowels are opened, and it only occurs on the outside of the anus, as opposed to being an internal issue. It can also be painful, particularly when passing a stool. There are a number of different reasons why people might get a perianal haematoma. Not getting enough exercise, having a sedentary lifestyle and also just sitting down a lot can put pressure on your anus, but then conversely, so can strenuous lifting.

Perianal hematoma: Causes, symptoms, and treatment

A perianal hematoma is a collection of blood that has leaked from a burst blood vessel in the area around the anus. As well as being uncomfortable, the appearance of a painful, bruised-looking bump near the anus can cause alarm. People may confuse these swellings with external hemorrhoids because both conditions cause sore lumps around the rectum. However, even though hemorrhoids are the most common cause of anal problems, they do not cause a perianal hematoma, and there are important differences between the two conditions. This blood pools up outside the blood vessel below the surface of the skin, although it is possible to see the characteristic dark-blue discoloration with the naked eye. Also known as anal thrombosis, a perianal hematoma can be small or large. Perianal hematomas are sensitive to pressure, and the larger they are, the more sore they can become.
