Hi and welcome to HCM.

Most common causes are hemorrhoid, fisures and polyps and this benign and non-serious,but considering your previous chemo there could be colitis caused by this. Also, considering your age and gender there is a risk of colon cancer so some endoscopic procedures should be performed.
Wish you good health. Regards
