    cancer worries..

    Hello, iím going to try to keep this short!

    I am a 21 year old male, i am also a newley father to a 7 month old girl, and i have a stay at home job on the computer. Im 155 pounds and 6 feet tall, and have a shitty diet that has a lot of processed meats, but the last few months i have cut down on a lot of bad food and iím slowly getting better. I mention this to give you an idea of my life duties.

    Iíve had health anxiety for 3 years now, iíve had nausea come and girl very rarely, but about 4 months ago i woke up randomly at 2am and vomitted quite a bit. 2 months after that I was so nauseous that i had to vomit but i just couldnít. I also stated to develop some stomach pain in the middle, some days itís not there and other days itís intense. A month ago I had a random change in bowel habits, and become constipated. Iíve been constipated ever since then, iíve seen my primary doctor and he prescribed me laxatives, which worked a tiny bit, i went back 2 weeks ago and told him that and he gave me a laxative pill to take, i had one HUGE poop after taking that and went back to being constipated basically. I use to have normal, brown poops, now I have tiny small dark brown poops that i have to strain out, sometimes i really have to push. A few days ago i went to a stomach doctor and i told him this and he scheduled me for a colonoscopy in 3 weeks. I mentioned colon cancer and he didnít give me any reassurance, all he said was ďyeah it could beĒ.. which does not help me at all.

    Sometimes right away after eating i get stomach pain, and iím mostly nauseous at night and morning. I also sometimes have sharp short ďbuttholeĒ pains, which sting but go away quickly. Now iíve started to get side pains, on the left and right side, that are sharp. Iím tired but thatís because of the baby i believe, i donít get that much sleep, and last night I had terrible night sweats and woke up every hour soaked, and now I think my colon cancer has spread to my lymph nodes and at this point itís basically too late to get any type of cure. Iím terrified of the colonoscopy because of both the surgery and the results. Has anyone else experienced any of this, I need some sort of help. My dream is to walk my daughter down the isle and i canít die on her. Thank you for reading all of this and responding in advanced!

    *update*

    My poops are now long and skinny, and iíve noticed tiny spots of blood on my toilet paper.. iím 3 weeks away from my colonoscopy still and iím freaking out they wonít catch it on time..

    Re: cancer worries..

    I have no idea why your doctor would say something like that to you. Given your age, there is a much bigger chance of this not being colon cancer. You might just have IBS C which causes constipation and may begin out of nowhere.

    Please let us know what you get for your colonoscopy result. I am pretty sure you are fine.
