Hi...., it could be a hemorrhoid... Hemorrhoids , also called piles,are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum. Hemorrhoids may result from straining during bowel movements . You can often relieve the mild itching, pain, swelling and inflammation of hemorrhoids with home treatments. Often these are the only treatments needed... Soak regularly in a warm bath or sitz bath. Soak your anal area in plain warm water 10 to 15 minutes two to three times a day...
