Rectal bleeding. Lump inside stomach. Unable to go to toilet

My son of 28 years had rectal bleeding 4 months ago it has now stopped, but he is now complaining of a not being able to go to the toilet and when he does it feels like something is left there in the back passage and feels a lump inside his stomach whenever he does go. I have tried talking to him about going to the doctor which he says he will attend, but then he makes excuses as when he does feel better he does not talk or want to make an appointment. Please could you give me a bit of advice as how I can help him. Many Thanks Stephanie

Hi thanks for your question
Your son had rectal bleeding four month back, now he is complaining of incomplete evocation along with swelling in abdomen.
Most probably your son bled from a pile mass or anal fissure and he has incomplete evocation due to painful defecation or due to constipation
The lump he is feeling in his abdomen is most probably retained fecal matter in rectum.
Get your child examined by a physician, he needs through physical examination along with investigation, espicially photocopy and or sigmoidoscopy (examination anal canal and large intestine with small cope).
Hope this answers your question
