What are the odds of a 33 year old male getting colon cancer? I have loose stool, incomplete evacuation, itch, constipation, urgency. Could it be IBS or something else?

In brief: Low risk for cancer

Your worry is understandable and made worse by financial concerns.
Check your local area for cash prices, non-insurance clinics and free health clinics. You will benefit from a doctors care, a good gp. Check out the bowel regimens for chronic constipation on healthtap.

In brief: Look for free care

Just because you don't have insurance doesn't mean you can't get healthcare.
On my website (sorry, no way around that), i've listed a number of options for free (or at least low cost) health care, drugs & tests. Or skip my site & just search online for free healthcare. Lots of options are available to you regardless of supreme court ruling.

As Drs. Berg & Rao noted above, average risk for colon cancer is low in general population but could be higher in given individuals due to special circumstances. This is where your family doctor can help you decide what's appropriate for you specifically. So start w/primary care first.
