What causes anal pain and blood in stools?

about a month ago i had a BM, and as i wiped I noticed a REALLY small speck of blood on tissue paper. i didnt really think much of it. till yesterday I had a BM and it happened again. I kept wiping through out the day to see if there was any more blood sometimes there was sometimes not. this amount of blood is so small and more pinkish then bright red fresh blood and just the size of a few dots.... anyway today my anus has been sore esp when I walk abit like burning sensation . I didnt see any blood on my tissue paper this morning. although since checking again before i had a small about again. I checked in mirror down there to see if i could see anything. i noticed where its sore left side of entrace to my anus. it feels hard dont know if lump or not i dont know if this is normal. am just panicing. my BM are normal apart from this and very regular every morning .am feeling 100% fit apart from this eating normal no weight loss or gain. I just dont know what it is and worrying about the big C word or hoepfully just piles or something. I dont know what to do :(. its quite sore there at moment and am worried about this lump. any advice am pretty scared

Hello,

* As per my case evaluation, possible fissure or haemorrhoid issue.
* Kindly get a proctoscopy examination done with your consultant surgeon for the best plan of management.
* Till that time, high fibre diet, bulk-forming laxative and sitz bath will help a great extent.
