Hello, : Hello, both hemorrhoids and genital warts can cause pruritis (itching) of the anus. Hemorrhoids are usually softer and the size can change depending on if they have become swollen. If you are really concerned about anal warts - your doctor could examine you.

Lots of things cause: Anal itching. But if you see a colon and rectal surgeon they can distinguish between warts and hemorrhoids easily and offer a solution to your problem.
