In brief: Hemorrhoids ?
Possibly external or internal hemorrhoids.
Sometimes may be important to rule out other pathology such as polyps or cancer of rectum/colon.

In brief: Blood in stools
Blood in stools - an 'alarm' symptom - one that requires explanation.
As to the further issue of the lump - all lumps warrant explanation. Please go see your md.

In brief: Dr. can evaluate it
Blood in the stool, trouble pooping, and a lump at the anus are symptoms that need to be evaluated by a primary care doctor or a gastrointestinal specialist.
The cause can be non-cancerous, such as hemorrhoids or an anal fissure. The cause can also be rectal or anus cancer, which are serious problems. These symptoms can also be due to a big wart, a big ulcer, or anal trauma.
