Hi there. thanks for the question. let me see if I can help. Is the protrusion always visible or just when he is pooping or right after pooping? Is it ulcerated or crusty or oozing or a smooth surface? does he seem painful? Is the skin of his anus white/pink skin or dark/pigmented skin? Thanks and I look forward to providing you with an answer after I get a little more information from you.
