Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
that is probably a hemorroid with mild symptoms since you have a small enlargement that appears when defecating or making pressure and goes inside after plus the pain felt around the anus
Hemorrhoids also called piles, are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum. Hemorrhoids may result from straining during bowel movements
Hemorrhoids may be located inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids-you might have internal hemorroid), or they may develop under the skin around the anus (external hemorrhoids).
Fortunately, many effective options are available to treat hemorrhoids. Most people can get relief from symptoms by using home treatments and making lifestyle changes.

Check with the doctor to confirm your diagnose based on your physical examination and to give the necessary treatment remember your state is still mild and simple and may happen and easily treated at the beginning ,the doctor may give creams and analgesic, suppository beside treating a cause if present like constipation
however don't worry try following these measures to prevent and heal early hemorroids :
>Eat high-fiber
>Drink plenty of fluids six to eight glasses of water and other liquidseach day to help keep stools soft.
>if you don't eat fiber you can consider fiber supplements
>Don't strain,Straining and holding your breath when trying to pass a stool creates greater pressure in the veins in the lower rectum.
>Go as soon as you feel the urge. If you wait to pass a bowel movement and the urge goes away, your stool could become dry and be harder to pass.
>Exercise. Stay active to help prevent constipation and to reduce pressure on veins, which can occur with long periods of standing or sitting. Exercise can also help you lose excess weight that may be contributing to your hemorrhoids.
>Avoid long periods of sitting. Sitting too long, particularly on the toilet, can increase the pressure on the veins in the anus.
