anal itching/burning

For about a month now, about 30-60 minutes after I have a bowel movement, I experience anal itching. I always make sure to clean thoroughly following the BM, but when I go back to the bathroom, there is a small amount of stool on the toilet paper. I assume this is stool and not mucus since it is mostly brownish yellow in color. After I re-clean the area, everything is fine until my next BM. Also, when I exercise (walking or running), the anal area feels very "raw" and irritated. My stools have all been relatively normal; no diarrhea or constipation, and stools are of normal size and color. I am worried about anal cancer. I have no history of hemorrhoids, and am a healthy 46 yr old male. Thanks for any help you can give to calm my fears.
