In brief: Common things are...

Common things are common! that means one should look for common reasons for having one's symptoms.
For feeling full shortly into a meal, there are many common reasons. The primary care doctor, after one or a few visits, can evaluate for the common causes. Then, a gastro-intestinal specialist can do added testing if needed. Cancer is always possible, but rare things are rare!

In brief: Early satiety

In 22 y/o, most common cause of early satiety would be gastritis (irritated stomach), which can happen from infection like a stomach flu, or from excess stress & worry, or too much spicy food or alcohol, tobacco exposure, or sometimes even an ulcer. Eat a bland diet, avoid alcohol & smoking, and if not better in 1 wk, see dr. Why worried about cancer? Know someone recently diagnosed?

In brief: Early satiety

Generally, early satiety is not a colon issue but an upper gastro-intestinal issue so it is safe to say: you don't have colon cancer! early satiety may be a sign of stomach ulcer so if the symptoms persist or if you develop pain, black stools (sign of blood) or vomiting brown 'coffee grounds' : time to get seen.
Hope you are better soon!
