Painful bowel movement with bleeding. Family history of colon cancer. What is it?

When I poop it hurts so bad I almost can't, it feels like I'm pooping razor blades or like my butt is superglued shut and i have to rip it open every time to poop and then the water in the toilet will be red from all the blood and the toilet paper will be covered with blood. I'm getting more scared every time, my sister has colon cancer and I don't know if it could be that or what. Any opinion or advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't have insurance and I can't afford to go to the doctor so what should I do??

Hi!
welcome to HCM!
You seem to be having anal fissure.An anal fissure is a painful cut in the lining of the anus.Tears generally occur just inside the opening.
A large, dry, or hard stool can tear the lining of the anus. Frequent diarrhea or irritation of the anus and rectum may also lead to a tear.About half of all fissures heal on their own or with self-care. Fissures that are fairly new are easier to heal than ones that have persisted for longer than three months
You must consult a doctor and get examined if it persists.
generally treatment aims to heal the cut and prevent future anal problems. .
avoid constipation by drinking enough water daily.Eat more fiber, Take stool softeners or bulk laxatives as directed by your doctor,Apply a medicated cream or ointment as directed by your doctor.
Use sitz bath that is Soak the anal area in warm tap water for 10-20 minutes several times daily.This helps to relieve pain and promote blood circulation.
I sincerely hope this will help you.take care
