Anal Pain

Many different conditions can cause anal pain so it is important to seek advice so that the cause can be determined. Sharp or severe pain at the time of bowel movements is most likely to be due to an anal fissure. If there is an associated tender lump it may be due to an abscess or a blood clot. Less common causes include anal or rectal cancer.
