Small outgrowth outside anus, problem in defecating, constipation. Is it due to outgrowth?

Hi...I have observed a small outgrowth just outside my anus which I had ignored a few months back. However, since the last 3-4 days I have been experiencing problems while defecating. I have something like constipation for the last 2-3 days but never had it before. There is no bleeding or itching but due to the constipation I am feeling pain and sligtly burning sensation around my anus. Is it because of the outgrowth? or something that needs to be attended immediately??? Lately my father has also been diagnosed with piles and he has been having a lot of trouble for the last 1 year because of this. Please help.

Thank you for the query.

Most likely you do suffer from hemorrhoids. However other anus diseases like fissure, polyp or even a cancer are possible (the cancer is very rare, usually appears over 50, does not hurt at the beginning and can easily bleed when touching it).
Hemorrhoids and fissure are strongly associated with constipations. Fissure gives strong pain while passing the stool.
I suggest you to visit your doctor, have rectal examination and rectosigmoidoscopy performed.
To avoid constipations you should drink more water, increase fiber rich products and physical activity.

Hope this will help.
