Not cancer: Prostate cancer is very rare in young men. In 30 years of oncology practice I have seen zero cases in men your age. Prostatitis, however, can occur in young men. The symptom is seldom in the anus per se, but more deep in the pelvis. The only way to know what your problem is, is to see a doctor.
