Brief Answer: Possible hemorrhoids,consult proctologist... Detailed Answer: Hi, I read your medical concerns carefully and would say it might be because of hemorrhoids. It is not a serious problem, but need to take proper measures. However, other local problems should be excluded like polyps. Therefore, I suggest to consult a proctologist (doctor/surgeon taking care of anal problems). Meanwhile, I suggest to - avoid constipation - avoid severe straining while passing the motion - eat more fiber - drink more water - avoid anal sex - take good anal hygiene - if no improvement, can take OTC cream for external hemorrhoids Hope it answered to your inquiries! If you have more questions, do not hesitate to contact me again at the next follow up. Dr.Klerida
