Brief Answer: Could be a Pile Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. The lesion you explain could be a pile (hemorrhoid). It could be in its initial stage hence is presenting only pain and itching later after progression it can also present with blood in stool. I recommend you to visit a Proctologist who can examine and identify the condition If its a pile he can place you on medication which can cure at the earliest. Regards,
