Hi,
The lesion that you saw in the anal region was most likely a thrombus formation due to hemorrhoids. Long standing constipation can cause this. This should not be handled manually by yourself. His doctor may decide to drain it under anesthesia. It is okay to wait till Monday to see the doctor. However if he has excessive pain, then you should go to the ER to get him examined.
Regards.
