Young male,most common answer for this = hemorrhoids.Internal (can't feel unless you insert finger)/ external,you can feel. Both totally treatable. Also might be fissures which are just tiny tears. Highly unlikely to be a lower rectal vault or lower colonic issue but I have to advise you to see a GI doc for proper diagnosis OK? Don't worry, I'm pretty darned sure it's hemorrhoids or fissures but get checked and get the right treatment.
