Bloating after eat: At your age it would be most likely a stomach issue such as gastritis or an ulcer before it would be ca. But you really need to get it checked since all of those issues are serious. The other possibility is a development of an intolerance to wheat products. If all checks out ok you should try a gluten free diet. Keep us posted!

It may not be cancer: Several diagnosis could be causing these symptoms and many are not cancer. May be ulcers, reflux, gallbladder issues, ect. You are doing the right thing by seeing your doctor.
