I'm 24 years old, I noticed towards the end of january what felt like something pressing against the my skin (but inside) just to side of my belly button (would be to my right).

Went to the docs after a couple of days because it was bugging me, and he did some quick exams putting pressure on said area and it didnt hurt or anything. Up until that point it just bugged me but didnt hurt.

I've noticed recently that i sometimes get a very un-settled stomach at times, and recently i noticed a change in my bowl times. I went on saturday and then didnt go again till today...but today I've been 3 times and the 3rd was diarrhea. Theres no blood or discolouration in my stools.

My parents keep saying it's probably just constipation or a twisted bowl (i have been doing a lot of sit ups, crunches and other exercises recently). However I'm petrified it's cancer or something. i'm going to the hospital on the 16th for an ultra sound scan...but im just worried if it is cancer...i want to catch it now!

Any Help/suggestions?
