I have been getting short sharp pains in my rectum and I was wondering if it is cause for concern? It happens once in a while not daily but some times it hurts a lot other times it is a faint pain. I have been told that I have HPV and I used to have anal sex could it have be contarcted in my anus also?

The pains could be from a variety of things...hemorrhoids, fissures, ulcerative colitis, perianal crohn's, fistulas, abscess, cancer....
Yes, you can have anal hpv -- which is the forerunner to dysplasia (precancer). You should have both cervical and anal paps.

I found TONS of internet information for anal hpv. I'd suggest you do the same...then make a doctor's appointment with your GP or gynecologist.

Please let us know the outcome.

Best to you,
