I should also add that I know rectal itching and diarrhea can be symptoms too. About a week ago I had a bad case of rectal itching that had me going back to wipe every two minutes or so for abut 15 minutes until I decided to put up with it. Never had that before, was weird at the time. Also, yesterday at the gym I felt the need to use the toiler sorta out of nowhere (I knew I had to use the toilet a some point soon, but it got really intense quickly.) I managed to make it home, but it was about an hour later and I couldnt hold it anymore. While it wasnt full diarrhea, it was definitely mushy.
I know internal hemerhoids can be painless, but colon cancer and other stuff can be too. Please help if you can, I really have no idea what to do. Thanks.

Hi and welcome,
Rectal itching is usually associated with hemorrhoids, NOT colon cancer. By the shear fact you passed blood, a colonoscopy should be done, butt more than likely it's just hemorrhoids.
Yes sometimes diarrhea can be associated with colon cancer, butt it can also be associated with many other medical issues like IBS, colitis, etc. Non cancer type problems.
Please get it checked out (colonoscopy), butt try not to worry, I think it's just hemorrhoids. A colonoscopy will give you a true diagnoses, anything else is just a speculation.
Keep us posted.
