Unhappy Rectal bleeding and coloured area

I have had trouble with an anal tear, which opens up from time to time and causes pain and bleeeding.
The blood is bright red and i can see where it is coming from.
However i started to bleed yesterday and am still bleeding from the same place, and the skin is dark coloured, almost black in that area.

i am very worried now.
I can't get to see a doctor today and am panicking.

Could it be anything else, or is it certainly cancer?

Re: Rectal bleeding and coloured area

How are you doing now? Do you have an urgent care you can go to in the area until you can get to your regular Dr.? This would get things started and would ease your mind...try not to worry too much, because it seems like you have had a problem with the area for a long time and you know what it is - since it changed so quickly overnight it is probably something else, regardless it sounds like it needs to be treated ASAP and you should try to get in as soon as possible to get more info. Please post back and let us know how you are.....
