Green mucos in my stool

My boyfriend was in severe pain for three days from a small lump on his anus which he thinks busted because the pain has lessened and there was some bleeding. The bleeding has stopped but now for the past three days he has had nothing but green mucus as a bowl movement. I am really worried please help.

Based upon your description, this is most likely an external hemorrhoid that has "thrombosed" (clotted) and bled. However, other lesions of the anus can cause these symptoms, and since I cannot examine him, he should have this area examined by his doctor, just to be safe.
