Brief Answer:
seems more of fissure or hemorrhoid issue .

Detailed Answer:
Welcome dear

Thanks for the details .

* This seems more of anal fissure or hemorrhoid issue , the primary evaluation
of which require procto anoscopy examination by the consultant surgeon
rather than colonoscopy .

Would like further details as

1. Feeling of burning discomfort after passing stools .
2. Any tissue type thing protruding out of anus during or after passing stool .
3. Proctoscopy examination ( per rectal ) has been done by the surgeon or not .

Hope this will help you .

Wishing you fine health ahead .
