Hello, good afternoon Syarif.
Complaints of having difficulty defecating, defecating soft and slimy, and feeling fecal movement can occur due to constipation. Constipation (constipation) is a condition of having difficulty defecating regularly, not completely completing, or not being able to at all. A person is said to be constipated if the frequency of bowel movements is less than 3 times a week. Constipation can be caused by: inadequate drinking habits, consuming less fibrous foods, often holding back bowel movements, side effects of drugs (such as diarrhea medications), dietary changes, or psychological disorders such as anxiety or depression. Apart from the condition of constipation, the complaints you experience can also be caused by other conditions, including: chronic inflammation of the colon (irritable bowel syndrome), stomach inflammation, and so on.
Regarding the presence of a lump in the anus that is not painful, it can indeed be hemorrhoids (hemorrhoids). One of the conditions of hemorrhoids can be caused by long-term constipation. Haemorrhoids are the dilation and inflammation of the blood vessels in the anal area. There are two types of hemorrhoids, namely internal and external hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids are swelling of the blood vessels inside the anal canal or in the wall of the rectum (the end of the large intestine), in this area there is little innervation so that internal hemorrhoids are less likely to cause pain. While external hemorrhoids are inflammation of the blood vessels near the anal canal. In this area there is more innervation, so that in external hemorrhoids the pain is more dominant.
Apart from hemorrhoids, lumps in the anus can also be caused by:
abscess (pus pocket) around the anus skin tag (excess skin formation in the anal area to form a lump) anal fistula (formation of a duct in the anal area that connects with the rectum, warts etc.
Unfortunately, to ascertain what disease is the underlying condition you are experiencing, it is really necessary to do a direct examination. We cannot diagnose your disease just from the complaints that you tell without seeing and examining you directly, because there are many possible diagnoses. Therefore, the advice we can give is for you to see a doctor.
Meanwhile, some suggestions that we can provide include:
Consume at least 8-10 glasses of water a day. Consume fruits or vegetables every day. Do regular exercise, don't hold your bowels
I hope this helps.
Greetings, dr. Denisa
