Thanks for query,
It is very normal , internal sphincter remains tightly closed in normal position so it resists and contracts more not to allow anything coming inside.
Ok and bye.

Hi welcome to healthcaremagic

The above thing you said , is not normal.. it is suggestive of anal tags or wart, or dilated veins... it is not a major problem.. but you you need to be clinically examined and treated.. treatment is simple excision... nothing much to worry...
