What you need to know about external thrombotic hemorrhoids

When a blood clot forms inside an external hemorrhoid, it often causes severe pain. This thrombosed external hemorrhoid can be felt as a firm, tender mass in the anal area, ranging from the size of a pea to the size of a golf ball. If left untreated, it may result in an anal skin tag.
