In brief: See your doctor

Given age, very unlikely to be colon cancer.
Much more likely an anal fissure or hemorrhoids related to constipation/low fiber diet. Please see your doctor fora complete history and physical. Depending on that workup, further evaluation by a general surgeon or gastroenterologist may be appropriate, but probably only after conservative therapies.
