Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

I looked at the images you have uploaded here.
The protruding thing is hemorrhoid ( piles).
Take high fiber diet, fiber supplements and drink lot of water ( which you have been doing already).
If it keeps worsening, then you may require surgery to remove it.

I hope that answers your question.
