In brief: Get evaluated

Both gastroenterologists & colorectal surgeons can help you.
They will first perform a visual inspection & digital exam after taking your history as to circumstances, duration, quality, timing of symptoms & your risk factors. They may then determine topical treatment or ask to perform further evaluation of the rectal lining. Symptoms may prove functional (proctalgia fugax) & warrant different rx.
