2 negative FOBTs, no anemia, no weight loss, no family history. Right abdo discomfort, + urination and reduced mainly loose stools for month.colon ca?

Uncertain: Hi. Negative stool guaiac tests do NOT exclude colon cancer! Your risk of that is low, based on what you've told us (age, no family history, guaiac negative), but not zero. The increased urination would not be related to any clone CA issue. Are you overweight? Check for diabetes. Right abdominal pain could be gallstones, liver capsule, etc. What worms is the mebendazole for? Any that go to liver? ...Read more

Have had flat stools for about 2 yrs. no blood. About every 2 weeks I'll have some loose stools. No weight loss. Appetite is fine. I'm scared ?

Any changes in the stool form may be diet related and you might want to try first some increased fiber in your diet (like veggies, fruits and if that does not work you can try things like Metamucil or Citrucil). Good luck! ...Read more

Can umbilical hernia cause nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, weightloss, strained bowel movemnt(even with loose stools)? Surgeon app. End of month.

Probably not all: Probably not all of those symptoms are related to an umbilical hernia. Most umbilical hernias are small and do not cause that much discomfort, naseua, fatigue, weight loss, etc. If it is really large, it can start having some of those symptoms. But in general, i doubt the unbilical hernia is causing all those symptoms. Good luck at the appt. ...Read more
