Hi,

Hemorrhoids or any other mass so you need to examine this first. As also said by you it is protruding outside so it is not a good thing so it is better to consult a physician. As hemorrhoids result in decrease of HB in long standing cases so better to operate it. Otherwise if it is very late your HB is low. It will be difficult to get operation done. Anyhow, there is no need to worry. It is not a major problem!

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Abhishek Khera, General Surgeon
