This is usually due to diverticulitis, but inflammatory bowel disease, old trauma, and, yes, cancer can be the source. You need evaluated, so ask your doctor for help . Good luck.

Not necessarily: Air bubbles when urinating implies a connection between the bladder and the colon (colovesical fistula), often seen with diverticular disease, and with advanced colon cancer. If there is a lot of bubbles in the bowl following urination, it may be normal, or may suggest increased amount of protein being voided.
