Thanks for the details.I can not commit to a diagnosis without examination or seeing the lump. However, it sounds more like a hemorrhoid due to its presentation.The smooth circle inside the anus is the hemorroid that is thrombosed (blood clot) which feels solid and like a mass in the rectum.Icing will not help at this point, it can help only when the hemorrhoid is outside the anal canal in reducing the inflammation and the pain.Yes, this is how a hemorrhoid acts and behaves once it has protruded and gone back inside. It takes time for it to settle. But as I have mentioned, it has a potential of recurring if not treated.Hope this helps.Please leave a positive rating for the service if satisfied.If you have more queries or need information reply back.Best.
