In brief: Colon cancer

At age 25 is low probability unless it is in the context of a strong family history.
Your discomfort is not likely due to colon cancer. Good luck.

In brief: Unlikely

Colon cancer is very unlikely in someone as young as 25.
Irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) and other kinds of bowel problems are much more common occurrences in your age range. Also some medications can change bowel function -- you don't list any meds, so i don't know what might apply to your situation. Your family physician can help you with ibs, and/or a gastroenterologist.
