You mean a painful bump in the rectum? What about the stools? Is there any blood in it? Is the stool solid or watery? Do you have any other conditions, such as diverticulitis? Acute diverticulitis would certainly cause painful bowel movements. Also, acute gastritis or gastroenteritis would also cause this.

Any additional information you'd like to provide? Did you have similar symptoms before? Any underlying gastrointestinal problems? I guess the bump is a hemorrhoid. It's likely that your symptoms of gas pain and painful bowel movements are related to the hemorrhoid. You can apply an over-the-counter hemorrhoid cream or suppository containing hydrocortisone, or use pads containing witch hazel or a numbing agent.
