Our expert says:
No it does not sound like a prostate cancer problem but something called proctalgia fugax - which is like a cramp in the anus. The blackish lump is probably caused by a clot in a hemorroid and if it does not go away by itself, should be removed surgically.
The joint pain may be totally unrelated and due to overexertion or gout or something else.
