Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, from your description, it is clear that you are suffering from clear cell carcinoma of ovary which has metastasis in anal region.

So, it is obvious that you may experience bleeding.

Metastasis means a cancer occurring in that particular region that is similar with that of its ovarian counterpart.

So, you should be operated for the metastasis to prevent further disease progression.
