Anyways what is this??? It didn't used to look like that. Is it a skin tag, hemmorhoid, fissure, or what? This photo was taken in normal circumstances 7 hours after BM

Here is my history and any information that might be useful.
-Used to have internal hemorrhoids.
-Mild pain around anus when passing stool
-Eat very healthy never have to push when I go
-Defecate in squatting position
-Bad back injury, had to lie in bed for a year. Bent spine but is fixed now, and damage to disc and soft tissue. Damage to lower back caused pinching/tightening feeling in anus especially when lying down.
-Pinching is gone now.
-Today I went for a walk and it felt like a crapped my pants and had no control over my anus. When I checked though there was nothing. It felt like I couldn't control one my sphincters. This was walking up hill.
-Had proctoscope and rectal exami
Hello from JA
A small hemorrhoid is what this looks like.
Take some preparation H
Get the stool very soft with a vegetarian diet.
Sit in a hot bath 3 to 4 times a day.
If not better in a week...rectal exam and possibly short scope.

sorry 1 more question, to keep things specific I will refer to the anus as a clock. What is the line that goes from the center to the 3:30 position and extends past the rim of the anus about 3mm? That has been there for a couple years. Also would walking affect the external hemorrhoid and cause a feeling similar to passing a stool? 1 last thing sorry, for preperation H I have the cream and the pill you push up. Which should I use?

Try the suppository
The line looks like a simple skin fold in the picture.
It could have a fissure in it, initial treatment is the same.
