You could have hemorrhoids or benign growths on your colon. Hemorrhoids will certainly cause bleeding when you poo and if you are constipated and have to strain, this makes them worse. Many folks have them. I would ask your doctor for a sigmoidascope, this way, he can check the area for any growths and such. But, from what I read, it sounds like hemorrhoids to me.

I would also try taking a stool softener daily, this will help with the constipation, thus, you will not be straining so hard. Drink lots of water, if you are dehydrated, you will be constipated as well. Eat more fiber and void sugar. Also, add a good, multi vitamin/mineral supplement to your daily regime. Also, try to quit smoking, I know it can be very hard, but, if you are concerned about cancer, this is the first place to start.

I hope this helps. It can be scary when we see blood in the stool.
