Brief Answer:
Few possibilities

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.
I don't think this is related to your primary cancer. In most cases blood in stool is related to hemorrhoids,anal fissure or polyps. some more serious diagnoses are not first thing to think of especially if there is no weight loss and abdominal pain. You should see proctologist for evaluation of what I 've mentioned. Wish you good health. Regards
