I have also seen that there will be urge to pass stool , 3-4 times a day. and never seems that stool has been passed out completely. Stool colour seems to be normal, with no blood.

Brief Answer:
Anal examination is needed

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

From your description, there seems to be a lump in anal area possibly hemorhoid. An Anal examination is needed to be done by a surgeon.

Other causes could be worm infestation, infection or irritable bowel.

So a stool analysis routine and for ova and cyst will also be helpful.

You can revert back with the reports.

Do let me know if I can assist you further.
