Felt something weird in my boyfriend's butt

    So yesterday I got back together with my boyfriend after being on a break for a year. When I massaged his prostate I felt something "spikey" maybe 3 inches inside. I didn't say anything because I was so freaked out. He's 40, in good shape. He claims to not have had a boyfriend for the entire time we were broken up, so maybe this is why it went unnoticed? What could it be? Really worried it could be growths or whatnot. I realize I'll have to bring this up to him soon and he'll have to be checked out but was just wondering if anyone knows what it could be?

    Was it "in" his bowels, or "on" his bowels?
    Shit feels rough to the touch in the rectum.
    I'm guessing that's what it is, but probe him again and see if you can find it.

    He should go to a proctologist for an exam.

    It could be nothing, it could be HPV, it could be cancer.

    I felt it again yesterday but not sure if it was in the same spot. I'll bring it up to him if it's still there tonight. Really hoping it was just poop. He does have HPV, too, though, so maybe it could be that.
    Have you guys ever made a similar experience? We only just got back together and he's really sensitive and easily embarrassed. How do I bring this up tactfully?

    Tell him that it's nothing to be embarrassed about! There is absolutely nothing embarrassing about knowing your health status and staying healthy. As GAMRican said, he needs to go see a colorectal doctor. If his condition is benign, awesome! But if it's serious and he waits to do something about it, then his embarrassment will turn into regret.
