Generally cancer is pretty silent until it starts pushing on something and by then it is generally in the gets bad, stays bad and only gets worse without treatment, and they tend to start messing up the blood work by then.

At your age it is much much much much more likely you have the very common hemorrhoids or a pretty common anal fissure rather than something highly unlikely at your age. If you were 73 I'd be more worried about colo-rectal cancer, but even then they often catch it during a screening colonoscopy rather than by symptoms first.
