It sounds like you: have had an adequate work up. Make arrangements for psychological counseling to help you deal with your anxiety.

stomach ca in a 22yr old would be quite abnormal but if you are concerned an egd or upper gi would be a better test

Don’t be scared: Go back and see the physician who performed your colonoscopy. He may want to do a Upper endoscopy checking your stomach and a small bowel capsule endoscopy to check the small bowel for lesions
