Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms of discomfort in anorectal region in your age can have many putative causes, one of the prominent cause being the malignancy, other causes can be ulcers, adenomas, fissure etc.
In any case due to malignancy being a differential you should get examined by a surgeon who would do a per-rectal finger and proctoscopic examination.
If any thing doubtful then sampling can be done or a biopsy can be taken if needed.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have any follow up queries or doubts, you can forward them for me, and I shall be glad to help you.
