Hi, I am pretty sure I have hemorrhoids. But my primary concern is what I saw when I squatted and held a mirror under myself. My anus actually protruded like a hemisphere after a couple of seconds of squatting. Is it supposed to do that, or is that what they call a prolapsed anus? It retracts back in pretty soon after standing, but it looked sort of strange. The color was pinkish-purplish flesh.
There was also a wavy, gelatinous looking pink flap attaches to one end of it, which I suspected is the hemorrhoids that border on internal/external. On the other end, there is something I'm not so sure about. It looks like a small red dot which possibly had a clear center, and it feels raw when I wipe. It seems to be right where the anus meets the rest of the skin. I sort of hope that is a hemorrhoid too, but I just can't see very much.
I have had both of these problems for years, but they never bothered me enough to seriously concern me. But they seem to maybe getting gradually worse, and so I have been getting more and more familiar with my anus. :/
I am just wondering if the protrusion I described is normal, and if its "features" sound like hemorrhoids. Thanks so much for reading.
