Hi,
Thank you for contacting Healthcare magic.
Based on the description, there are two possibilities.
1. Haemorrhoids or piles- in this case, veins in the area become dilated and may come out of anus and sometimes bleed. Usually painless.
2. Rectal prolapse- in this condition, a lump seems to protrude out of anus, which is often painless.
Both these conditions are well treatable. Sometimes, surgery may be required. Please consult a general or gastro surgeon for evaluation and treatment.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM

what about the chest pains does it have a connection to the piles or constipation ?

Hi,
Thank you for getting back.
Chest pain has no connection with piles.
The likely causes can be a bit of acidity or gas, which could be related or unrelated to constipation.
A course of rabeprozole or pantoprozole may be helpful if symptoms are more like burning pain in the chest.
Best wishes,

Hi,
Thank you for getting back with more details.
If you have constipation, you can take syrup lactulose 30 ml at bed time. This would be useful.
You can wait till you see your doctor. No need to worry at present.
Please get back if you have any more queries.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
