Hey guys I'm new here,
Okay, I'm gonna begin to let this all out because I can't take it anymore and I'm going to begin from the start. I am 21 years old, male, no history of cancer in my family, and obese. Almost three weeks ago I found blood on the toilet paper and my stool was green. I began to panic and immediately search google (our best friend!) for things and stumbled upon colon cancer. I began to panic and ever since then I couldn't get it out of my head and I couldn't stop crying. I went on having green stool, a day with black stool, constipation one day, diarrhea the next, pencil thin stools, and now my stools look normal despite me not going as much as I used to. Yes I'm a very anxious person, and yes I've had depression before just so you guys know.
I went to the doctors and they ordered some blood work and some tests. Let it also be known that I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs of any kind at all. When I got the tests back it showed that I had a high ALT, AST, and Bilirubin which indicates liver damage or a disease of the liver. Again I went back to google and my parents have been telling me its because of my weight and it'll cure itself when I begin to exercise more (which admittingly i dont do). I was not medicated and the doctor simply stated that if I leave it alone it'll heal itself, but what if it's too late? She was extremely mean and seemingly did not care about her patients, so I feel like none of my questions were answered and I'm sitting here crying, alone and confused. I have nobody to confide in, nobody to help me. I feel like my time on this earth is up and I'm absolutely afraid of what's going to happen to me. I also read that colon cancer can spread to the liver, causing damage. They have not finished my stool tests and only told me that they'd call me if there were any abnormalities. I haven't had any other symptoms other than the awkward stool issue and some discomfort (not pain though) in my lower left side. I'm really scared and I don't know what to expect or think. I'm lost.
