Great news on the blood work. CC can't really be diagnosised or ruled out by blood work alone however if it was advanced enough to show symptoms such as pain and change in bowel habits its likely something would also be off with your blood work such as low iron or liver enzymes because it almost always goes to the liver. Relax. You are 19 young and healthy. You have had multiple medical tests and blood work to prove it.
Hi Daniel,That all sounds extremely positive. You should keep a food diary and see how your body reacts to certain foods now, and take it from there. My Gastro told me about the FODMAP diet and after trying it for a few weeks I saw improvement with my symptoms.
I agree with your GP, this is likely IBS. Colon Ca in a 19 yo is almost unheard of. The only way I would be concerned is if you had a family history of people under 30 with colon cancer. Even then with your history of anxiety the likelihood of this being IBS is broaching 99%.
Danial You have had an ultrasound and MRI. Those 2 tests are performed to rule out tumors. Your were perfect your blood work was perfect. For those rare few who had CC early on and it wasn't caught it was most likely because a GP didn't order ANY tests because of age. It sounds like your ordered almost every medical test available besides colonoscopy and EGD. You are prime age for IBS. Please do not be this way. I was in your exact shoes a couple months ago. I was an wreck over CC. I'm much older than you (27) and I did not have it! Please talk to your GP about your anxiety, and hurry.
You WOULD have to have a family history of CC. You asked earlier if I have IBS, yes, I do. Anxiety makes it so much worse. I know it's hard but you can trust your Drs. I promise.
