In brief: Two thoughts

The possibilities here are numerous, but at least two that come to mind are 1) childhood developmental factors, and 2) anger as covering over other feelings.
For the first one, if children aren't taught to deal with anger early on, they'll have trouble with it later. For the second one, anger can sometimes be an internal defense against other, more troubling feelings that are harder to express.

In brief: See Below

We usually feel angry when we lose sense of control or feel frustrated.
"anger issues" can be traced to different times in our lives:how we reacted to similar situations before. Look at the situations that make you feel angry, or trigger frustrations: diary will help with that. If anger issues interfering with major areas of your life, seek professional help: meds and psychotherapy. Good luck!

In brief: Anger

Anger often masks insecurity and feelings of inadequacy, especially if a person becomes angry often.
