Go for proctoscopic examination to rule out hemorrhoids.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
I've gone through your details and I appreciate your concerns.
Most likely you are having hemorrhoids, which are inflamed veins in the anus or rectum. Irritation to these veins can make you bleed itch and burn after and during bowel movements.
I would suggest you plan a visit to a general surgeon and get a proctoscopy and digital examination of rectum done to rule out hemorrhoids as a cause of the problem.
If hemorrhoids are diagnosed then conservative management would be started.
You can use Preparation-H, a combination containing contains Calcium Dobesilate, Hydrocortisone, Lignocaine, and Zinc for relief till the test is done.

Anal cancer usually presents with aggressive symptoms.
Hello again my dear patient,
Thats why i asked you to go for proctoscopy if its normal then we have to go for colonoscopy.
My dear friend thumb rule of medical sciences is common thing first.
We start from most common thing and move toward complicated things.
As per your narration-
Bleeding is usually there while wiping (Tell tale hemorrhoid)
Itching is there
Very likely to be hemorrhoid.
Symptoms of anal cancer are usually more aggressive and patient has profuse bleed with severe pain.
So have faith on me.I am just following the protocol.
If proctoscopy is normal then we would definitely proceed with sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy.
As per standard literature-
When a patient presents with bleed after the age of 50, it is recommended that he/she should have a colonoscopy initially but as you are just 41 intially go for proctoscopy.
Hope i explained you the query well.
Please feel free to follow up.
