Lump present inside anus, no pain or bleeding. Due to hemorrhoids or degenerative disc disease?

I have a lump just inside my anus ..feel like it blocks stool. Could it be an internal hemroid or more thing else. No blood or pain. I o have bowel movements sometimes small pellets or soft stools . Have had hemroid s before but external. Also just diagnosed with advanced degenerative dsc disease associated with grade 1 spondyloslolisthesis at L5-S1. Facet joints couldn t be seen due to overlying bowel gas and feces. What des that mean and any connection. Also any recommendations on how to rid back of chronic pain?

Thanks for your query.

It is better to get the lump inside anus to get examined by a physician. It can be a benign papilloma or internal hemorrhoids. It can also be cancerous.

I do not think it is being caused by degenerative disc disease.

During radiological examination, some tissues can overlap. The underlying bone may not be clearly seen. It is not of much clinical significance.

Regarding the chronic pain being caused by degenerative disc disease, there are pain-killers available that can make your life better. Also try some back exercises that can strengthen your back muscles. Strong back muscles will provide support to your spine. Take calcium and vitamin supplements to make your spine strong.

Take care
