In brief: Very unlikely

These would not be symptoms of stomach cancer, and at age 18 it would be extremely unlikely.
If these symptoms continue you should see a physician for work up. Celiac disease is one possibility.

In brief: Other causes?

Stomach cancer would be very unlikely in a young man.
However, there are myriad other possible causes of your symptoms that your doctor can help you figure out what they are and how to treat them.

In brief: Not yet

My first concern is celiac sprue / gluten enteropathy.
If this isn't the case, still get a proper workup, including checks for Whipple's, Crohn's, others. Your physician knows how to handle this. Cancer is very unlikely; other serious disease could well be present.
