Jack, the most common cause is haemorrhoids, but there are a host of other cause as well – some of them dangerous. Other causes include anal tears, polyps, ulcers, infections, inflammatory bowel syndromes (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease), and cancers. The best would be to pay your doctor a visit and make sure it’s nothing serious. Good luck.
