Itchy, sore bump inside anus. Blood after bowel movement. What is this?

Just inside my anus I can feel a bump.I checked with a mirror and If i spread my anus apart something comes down like a bubble. It is very dark in color. Itchy and sometimes sore. After a bowel movement sometimes when I wipe myself there's a spot of blood. Its just a spot and very bright red. Do I have to concern myself with thoughts of cancer?

Hi, you are having internal hemorrhoids.Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal canal. This common problem can be painful, but it's usually not serious ....Too much pressure on the veins in the pelvic and rectal area causes hemorrhoids.If you strain to move stool, the increased pressure causes the veins in this tissue to swell and stretch. This can cause hemorrhoids.Diarrhea or constipation also may lead to straining and can increase pressure on veins in the anal canal.and remember overweight can also lead to hemorrhoids.Internal hemorrhoids often are small, swollen veins in the wall of the anal canal. But they can be large, sagging veins that bulge out of the anus all the time. They can be painful if they bulge out and are squeezed by the anal muscles. They may be very painful if the blood supply to the hemorrhoid is cut off. If hemorrhoids bulge out, you also may see mucus on the toilet paper or stool.
For most external hemorrhoids, home treatment is all you need. This includes slowly adding fiber to your meals, drinking more water, and using over-the-counter ointments for a limited time to stop itching. You also may use stool softeners. The same home treatment can be used for most internal hemorrhoids.
If your internal hemorrhoids are severe, you may need other treatment. The doctor may tie off the hemorrhoids with rubber bands or scar the tissue around the hemorrhoids. These treatments reduce the blood supply to the hemorrhoids so that they shrink or go away.
Surgery to remove hemorrhoids may be done if other treatments don't work.
Healthy habits can help you prevent hemorrhoids or keep them from getting worse. Eat foods that have lots of fiber, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Also, drink plenty of water, and get plenty of exercise.... I hope this would be helpful to you. And now contact general sugeon or proctologist immediately for perfect diagnosis and treatment... Ok
