Exam: He will need to see a doctor for an examination of the area. It could be a genital wart, hemorrhoid or simple skin tag. Without seeing the area we can not say for sure. Without knowing the cause we can not comment on whether or not it is infectious. Rectal bleeding must be evaluated by a doctor.
