Burning/Aching anus
I have for the last 3-4 years had itchy irritation off
and on. I also have a small pain at times on my left
side of rectum, and just inside, which shoots down my left hip andleg. Sometimes I burn and ache around the anus.  I dont know if related, but think they could be.I have also had bright red blood on toilet paper,but has only happened once evey several mos. This all comes and goes. What could it be?

Most likely hemrroids or a fissure (tear in the anal wall).  However any degree of bleeding should be evaluated by either sigmoidoscopy (for patients of low risk for colon cancer and under 40) or colonoscopy.
