    Good morning. Notably a bulge like swelling. Depending on the type, there could be pain or pressure symptoms. It often times maybe symptomless. Prevention includes limiting muscle strain e.g during defecation, avoiding lifting heavy weight, treatment of persistent cough, healthy lifestyle and nutrition, regular review with your doctor.
