This is so shamefull but I have a question to ask.
I have recently discovered that I have a "lump" that comes out of my rectum when I'm on the toilet. I think it's been there for years although stupidly I've never paid much attention to it. It doesn't bleed unless I have really large bowel movements in which case I notice a tiny speck of blood on the paper. It doesn't look red and inflamed like the pictures of hemorrhoids I've seen on the internet so I'm not sure what it is exactly.
It's very uncomfortable and distressing because I don't feel like I'm able to empty my bowel fully because once it "pokes out" it blocks the whole enterance making it very difficult to move my bowels. It's a bit larger than a pea and it looks absolutely horrendous.
I must mention that when I was younger I once had a small part of my intestine come out of my anus. I think this may be the same thing....
Has anyone heard of something like this before? Or any idea as to what it may be? Also does anyone know HOW these things can be treated?
