Rectal problem


Q: Hi i am a 28 year old male and heres my problem i took a poo the other week and it was rather large all tho I am pretty used to pooping big this particular time i seem to have torn or maybe ruptured something in my rectum muscle. it does not really show except what looks to be a blood blister about 5 mm in diameter just outside the rectum. also i can feel a small hard ball like something probably 3-4 mm in diameter just under the skin under the blister and as off a couple days ago going to the bathroom was not difficult but now it seems like its just hard to pass a poo not sure if its because of how tense i am from the fear of it being something really bad it does not hurt except when i touch or put pressure on the little ball like thing and also iv been looking at it in the mirror while i try to poo and i see my rectum protruding about a half inch or maybe a lil more not sure if thats normal plus im bipolar and tend to get really paranoid about things like this and hospitals it does not seem to be getting worse nor better what could it be and what can i do and what might a doctor do if i go see one ?
