Fissures or something else?

I am 21 and I have had bleeding when making bowel movements since I was 16 or 17, sometimes it is worse than others. about 2 months ago it started getting really bad, so I started to take care of myself better, taking stool softeners, taking more bathes and being softer. Now it only bleeds near the very end of cleaning when I press hard.

My wife looked up pics on the internet of anal fissures and then looked at mine and compared and said they look very similar, I don't have any bumps or warts which I know is a main cause of anal cancer from what I know.

Like I said I was around 16 or 17 when it started happening, my Mother went to the pharmacy and asked for me, she said it was common if he sits a lot, which I did. So she assumed I had hemorrhoids and bought me cream, it didn't really work.

One day I was on the phone with my Uncle and he said he has the same thing, and he had it most of his life. I should also add that cancer is very rare in my family. I talked to a doctor about it and he said most likely fissures since you have not felt sick at all or dead after almost 5 years, but said I should still get it checked... any idea if it may be something else?
