When rage or anger expressed in balanced way it is good for the cause and society and for the person as well.
Usually anger is expressed by yelling, scolding, raising the voice or screaming.

It is a bodily mechanism and a normal phenomena. Anger should be released one or other time definitely as it is good for the health.
When anger is uncontrollable or frustrated then it is called as problem. It will lead to physical, mental problem as well lead to a social relationship crisis.
Anger triggers the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response. Other emotions that trigger this response include fear, excitement and anxiety. The adrenal glands flood the body with stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol.
The brain shunts blood away from the gut and towards the muscles, in preparation for physical exertion. Heart rate, blood pressure and respiration increase, the body temperature rises and the skin perspires. The mind is sharpened and focused. In studies came to know that, repetitive calling of stressor mechanism leads to increased levels of accumulation of atherosclerosis in heart vessels and c reactive protein also generates much which in turn increases heart problems. Also anger associated with depression and anxiety.
The constant flood of stress chemicals and associated metabolic changes that go with recurrent unmanaged anger can eventually cause harm to many different systems of the body.
Some of the short and long-term health problems that have been linked to unmanaged anger include: headache, digestion problems, such as abdominal pain, insomnia, increased anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, skin problems, such as eczema, heart attack and stroke.
Many people express their anger in inappropriate and harmful ways, including:
Anger explosions – some people have very little control over their anger and tend to explode in rages. Raging anger may lead to physical abuse or violence. A person who doesn’t control their temper can isolate themselves from family and friends. Some people who fly into rages have low self-esteem, and use their anger as a way to manipulate others and feel powerful.
Anger repression – some people consider that anger is an inappropriate or ‘bad’ emotion, and choose to suppress it. However, bottled anger often turns into depression and anxiety. Some people vent their bottled anger at innocent parties, such as children or pets.
With the anger you will start losing the personal relations, you lose relations with peers and known person, which make you feel depressed and person may become more violent or depressed. It will lead to mental problem.
At the same time, it is problem if you don’t express your feelings. If you feel you don’t want to hurt your loved one by showing your anger, or you feel that it is inappropriate time to show your anger, you start bottled up your anger and starts suppressing it. Suppression of anger leads to many physical and mental ailments, like, depression or anxiety, sleep problems, alcohol or drug addictions, eating disorders, compulsive behaviour e.g. excessive cleaning, overworking and self-harm.
