In brief: Eval

Anal fissure can present with marked pain when passing stool and blood.
However, it is only one of many possible causes for rectal bleeding and warrants medical evaluation.

In brief: Seek attention today

If cancer scares you, this is very unlikely in someone your age.
But there are inflammatory and infectious intestinal disorders that cause these symptoms. They are easy to diagnose and they can all be treated.
