Thank you for posting your query.

The most likely possibility is a rectal prolapse, where a part of rectum protrudes out of the anus.

The common symptoms are rectal pain, tenderness, pain while passing stools and bleeding.

The only other differential diagnosis is haemorrhoids or piles, but in piles, pain is not a feature, bleeding from rectum is the main complaint.

Please consult a surgical gastroenterologist or a colo rectal surgeon for evaluation and treatment.

Hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
