Data incomplete: Rare things like stomach cancer rarely happen & certainly in a 17 yo. When you post on this site you should provide as much background information on the issue before you ask a question. Listing your fear is helpful, but not helpful. Symptoms/duration evaluations done to date are all relevant. You are welcome to start over.

Near zero: If you are having weight loss, nausea, vomiting blood, dark blood in your stools, or abdominal pain that's not something normal, please get seen by your physician. The fact that you list "many symptoms" but not one in particular that bothers you especially makes me think that you're feeling the effects of a difficult life situation -- but let your physician make that determination.

Heath concerns: You sound frightened. Please see your doctor. He/she will examine you and let you know what is happening. Cancer is very low on the list of possibilities. You share very little information about your symptoms here so be very open w/your doctor. Peace and good health.
