I think I might have the symptoms of stomach or colon cancer possibly late stage, I am 26 years old
I know that I should see a doctor and I do have an appointment , but I just want to know if this looks like symptoms of late stage stomach or colon cancer.
or any stage stomach colon cancer

pain in abdomen (ussally is in upper left but sometime moves)

pain in left side of back

really bad rumbling in my stomach
( it can get really loud at times)

diareah mixed with constipation

mucus in stool (not always but sometimes)

when I wiped there was bright red blood on the paper, The doctor gave me a FOBT test and two were positive and 1 was negative

the doctor also said there was a small amount of blood in my urine( thats
got me affraid that if it is cancer it has spread)

I have lost my appetite (just dont feel hungry anymore)



I have lost about 10 pounds ( the weight loss was before I lose my appetite, when I was still eating good.

I am always sick to my stomach

and theres a really bad pressure or fullness in my stomach that
seems to get worse when i eat or when i am standing up


I am so affraid that I have cancer , and I know that if I do it is in a late stage, because of all my symptoms, I really dont think this could be anything but cancer, is there anything that could cause these symptoms besides cancer, does these sound like colon cancer symptoms, and if anybody reading this has been diagnosed what were your symptoms, and
what is your age. I am very upset right now so if any one can please reply ASAP thanks

Good luck.

Bright red blood unlike other less amounts of blood is often a sign of piles - maybe because of constipation and your stomach problems which could have also caused you to loose weight, that and the fact you are so stressed out. Your symptoms might also have been caused by an H pylori infection - sending you the link. Your doctor should do more tests: colonoscopy, upper endoscopy and test for H pylori. Stop assuming the worst and settle down a bit gastro/digestive problems are nasty, made worse by stress and often take months to rectify themselves most gut problems do. It's your health make a nuisance of yourself with the doctor if you have to until he gets you those tests, good luck and chill.http://www.gicare.com/Diseases/Helicobacter-Pylori.aspx

H pylori should be tested for as this can cause an increased chance of cancer anyways.The tests take only a few moments, H pylori breath tests 10 mins, upper G.I 30 mins, so go and get the tests and put your mind at rest.
