See a psychologist: You should get evaluated. Schedule an appointment with a psychologist for an evaluation. Therapy and/or medication will help if in fact you are anxious. Make sure you talk about your symptoms and not a diagnostic label. You have listed physiological symptoms of panic/anxiety. The fear of cancer is an intrusive thought. Seek help, take care. ...Read more

Prob. not cancer: You are a low age probability for cancer. Your symptoms still need attention, though, since they're bothering you this much! "excruciating" stomach pains and diarrhea can be anything from irritable bowel syndrome to inflammatory bowel disease like crohns. Please do see your primary care doctor asap so you can get to the bottom of this, and have relief. ...Read more

I've been having bad stomach pains off and on for about 3yrs there's been blood coming out of my but and sometimes paper thin poop could it be cancer?

Yes, time 2 evaluate: Honestly, the likelihood is low of cancer in a 21 year old, but your three-year history of bleeding per rectum and altered stool pattern in the setting of abdominal pain certainly warrants evaluation. There are lots of possibilities, some scary, but you certainly don't want to miss finding & treating the one(s) that are. ...Read more

Stomach pains, chest pains low energy, losing weight. I am 18. Is it cancer? Pancreatic cancer maybe because tobacco use since 10 months back. Afraid

Something else: You need to see your doctor and get further evaluation. Some blood work will be good to start with, then perhaps imaging study or referral to specialist if indicated. Pancreatic cancer is very rare at your age- unless you have a positive family history of pancreatic ca. Acid reflux disease , depression are more common at your age and may be something to consider.

My sister was told her extra hypetic biliary duct was enlarged is that bile duct cancer? She has lost about 30 lbs in less than 2 mo's, has really sharp stomach pains, diarriha, no appetite, & nausea. Was admitted to the hosp & was told what test revealed

The : The liver makes bile, the substance that makes the stool brown. The bile comes out from the liver through bile ducts. Normally the bile goes into the gallbladder, where the bile is concentrated and stored for excretion into the intestine after eating, to assist in digestion. The bile ducts are classified as: intrahepatic (within the liver) and extrahepatic (outside the liver, i.e. From the liver to the duodenum thru the common bile duct). The common bile duct tranverses the pancreas where the pancreatic duct joins and then exits through the ampulla of vater. Therefore blockage at the ampulla, in the pancreas and in the common bile duct itself can lead to extrahepatic dilitation. The most common reason for a slightly enlarged bile duct is after the gallbladder is removed and the bile duct enlarges to accommodate the increased flow of bile. This is usually not associated with any abnormalities in the liver function tests. If there is a blockage due to a stone in the bile duct, or from a mass, such as a cancer or from scarring such as from pancreatitis, the liver function tests will be abnormal and the patient may become jaundiced, or yellow. The second most common reason for bile duct dilation is a common bile duct stone, usually associated with gallstones. The weight loss, loss of appetite is concerning and she should have additional testing, including an ultrasound or ct scan as well as bloodwork. She should see a gastroenterologist or general surgeon. ...Read more
