Worst Constipation ever

I have been in the buprenorphine clinic since June 2015, my apointments are once a mnth, andbim prescribed two a day for 28 days, which make 56 a mnth. Recently my stomach been cramping up, so I go to bathroom, it's very painfull and I notice white mucus and blood in my stool. The past two times, the last two days, I've used the bathroom once a day, and noticed the white mucus and blood in stoop but not only tht there's alot of blood. I wipe, bright red blood. These past couple days was the worst I've had. I noticed my body acting differently last week, my stomach cramped up and it was the most painfull of cramps I've ever had, very painful to use bathroom. No blood or mucus however. I unloaded the most I ever did in one toilet use. I hadn't used bathroom for 3 or 4 days prior. But ever since then now I have white mucus and blood, last two times lots of it. Next toilet use of I have same problem then I'm going to have to make an apointment. I'm gonna start eating alot of fiber and take fiber pills if needed. I havnt had no fevers. I'm worried something is wrong with me(cancer), and I'm gonna have to quit using the buprenorphine eventually. Are these signs of cancer?

If there are altered bowel habits, blood per rectum or digital rectal exam findings indicate a suspicious growth then a Colonoscopy can be considered in consultation with your Gastroenterologist to look for suspected pathologies

For the time being as far as the constipation is concerned you can take a combination of alverine citrate plus simethicone along with a pro Kinetic such as domperidone in consultation with your doctor
