There is no link that I know of between anal sex and increased risk or incidence of cancer. Anal sex has a high risk of HIV/STI transmission which is why there is so much caution around it. Of course people who engage in sex on a daily/ anal only sexual basis stand a risk of damaging the anus and the colon due to ongoing stretching.
Bleeding is common which is why it is high risk sexual activity - exchange of blood can be dangerous. Bleeding occurs due to tearing of tiny blood vessels inside the anus.
It is essential that you use a lot of lubricant and a condom. Read up on practicing safer anal sex - Jack Morin has an excellent book on anal sex for women so i suggest you learn from his work.
