Painful swelling in the rectum after straining. History of hemorrhoids. Lump getting bigger. What to do?

I strained by screaming a week ago, and right after that, my inner left butt chick, under the skin, swelled out, and is really hard, and very painful. I have had a regular hemroid, but its not like that. Its not really swelled in the rectum . Its on the inner left side, runs from rectum, and further out seems to get bigger, about half size of a golf ball. I just seen my genral surgeon 2 wks ago, and he said everything looked ok then. I m 43 yrs old. Thank you

Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.Your problem is most likely a thrombosed piles. In such cases i recommend sits bath stool softeners and analgesics.Topical nifedipine also i prescribe for my patients. But if pain is more even after this then a surgical excision is preferred.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
