There is small swelling in the anal hole ,and is painful while passing stools and also while cleaning the anal area. Stool is very hard, and I am not consuming any non veg food. Now blood is not found in stools. What may be the cause? How can I get rid of this? Presently I am having a job which doesn't have much physical movements.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From your description it is bit difficult to give an opinion. It is better to consult a local surgeon as it could be either hemorrhoids or fistula. It has to be checked physically. Thanks.
