I’m Dr Chaithanya, experienced Physician attending you today.
Based on your history it can be an anal skin tag or a hemorrhoid.
Hemorrhoids usually cause blood leaking when you are passing stools.
If you did not observe any blood, this can just be an initial stage and you may not need any surgery.
Just a local ointment application, and a diet change can be advised.
Yes, it is always good to get checked by the doctor and get treated early before any complications arise.
