Large lump on the left side of bottom close to leg, increasing in size, bleeding. Hemorrhoid ?

I have a large lump on the left side of my bottom, bottom side closest to my leg. It started off small and then got very large and started bleeding . It is extremely painful. It feels like a hot piece of coal wrapped in shards of glass is trying to protrude out of my skin. Did something bite me? Or is this actually a hemmoride?

General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

If this lump comes from your anus than it is most likely the hemorrhoid. When it gets outside and squeezed by the rectal muscle, it starts aching. It is advisable for you to visit a surgeon as usually such hemorrhoid needs to be put back into anus and after acute inflammation will be cured, removal might be the only way for permanent relief.
Moreover, if the blood in stool appears it is necessary to have colonoscopy performed, especially if you do suffer also from constipations, are older than 50 or has some weight lost recently.

Hope this will help.
