In brief: Anal swelling

Anal/rectal pain and swelling may be an indication of underlying disease--fissure, proctitis, fistula, abscess.
Hemorrhoids may be exacerbated by increased pelvic congestion. Rectal prolapse is a outward bulging. Anal trauma of any kind may cause mechanical injury. Evaluation is recommended to distinguish serious versus less concerning reasons for her distress as described.
