Thanks for your query.
XXXXXXX blood in the toilet wipes indicate presence of either Fissure or complicated Hemorrhoids.

I suggest you to get examined by a general surgeon who can identify the exact problem and place you on treatment.

Meanwhile do avoid constipation by taking laxatives like Liquid paraffin or Psyllium husk. Also If the anal opening presents with burning sensation after passing stool, then do apply 2% Xylocaine gelly over the affected area.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Thanks for writing back.

Need not worry. Cancers are usually associated with severe weight loss and loss of appetite.

If the cancers are in the stage where they ooze blood you would be suffering from many other symptoms.

Do get examined to be sure of.

Wish you good health.
