Rectal Pain Overview

Rectal pain or discomfort is usually caused by a disorder of the rectum or anus. Common causes include minor rectal injury (e.g. from constipation or diarrhea), hemorrhoids or anal fissure. Rectal itch or anal itch may cause the patient to scratch and thereby cause a minor skin injury.
