Rectal Bleeding

Is it possible to have rectal cancer without any pain, diarrhea or inflammation?

First of all its not normal to have rectal bleeding, but that does not mean you have cancer.  I have bad hemorrhoids, and if I am constipated they bleed a lot.
Have you been checked by a doctor.  You should get a colonoscopy, it will tell you and the doctor numerous things about your health.
I just had my 5 year colonoscopy, and everything was normal with the exception of the hemorrhoids.
You will not know unless you find out.  Its not good to have too much bleeding either.
I am anemic, and when I have bouts of bleeding for a few days my Red Blood Count drops.  Check it out for your own peace of mind as well as your health.
