You might also need a colonoscopy to make sure there are no other problems on the inside.

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose the bump. However, it could be a small external hemorrhoid. If you are constipated, it can increase the chances of getting a hemorrhoid. Recommend that you drink at least 8 8 ounce glasses of water per day. Recommend 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. It is really important to get adequate fiber in your diet and to try to avoid junk food if possible. If it continues to grow, you can have it examined to determine if it is a hemmorhoid or a different type of lesion. ...Read more

Rectum not normal?:
i may need you to rephrase your question.
But, the assumption I make is that your stool is frequent and/ or soft in the morning. It is very common to have a bowel movement at the same time every day. And, to have this happen when one first awakes is also very common.
