A mass that protrudes out of the anus during defecation, accompanied by moist or mucus in the anus, most of which are prolapsed internal hemorrhoids or rectal mucosa;
If the swelling next to the anus is protruding, the pain is obvious, and the boundary with the surrounding tissues is clear, it may be suffering from thrombotic external hemorrhoids or inflammatory external hemorrhoids;
The lumps around the anus are diffuse with local fever and pain or even increased body temperature, which is a symptom of perianal abscess;
An ulcer around the anus, repeated discharge of pus, and induration or cords on the touch are the manifestations of anal fistula;
