Bump close to rectum is either because of Hemorrhoids or this could be Wart , or benign mass .

It would be ideal for you to have examination please .

Exact nature of the Lump can be defined after examination , and appropriate treatment can be offered accordingly .

So please go for examination .

Good luck .
