Colitis?: Cancer is unlikely with these symptoms, especially at your age. In your part of the world, parasitic infections are frequent, e.g. mild chronic amebic dystentery and others. Inflammatory bowel disease is possible. STDs can do this when the rectum has been exposed, especially in men who have sex with men. See a doctor, and expect referral to a gastroenterologist for colonoscopy. Good luck!
