    Re: Problem

    Issue and matter are considered synonyms, and, indeed, they are very similar.

    According to Merriam-Webster:

    a matter that is in dispute between two or more parties b (1) : a vital or unsettled matter <economic issues> (2) : CONCERN, PROBLEM <I have issues with his behavior> c : the point at which an unsettled matter is ready for a decision <brought the matter to an issue>

    1 a : a subject under consideration b : a subject of disagreement or litigation c plural : the events or circumstances of a particular situation d : the subject or substance of a discourse or writing e : something of an indicated kind or having to do with an indicated field or situation <this is a serious matter> <as a matter of policy> <matters of faith>
