Can undiagnosed stomach pain be due to stomach cancer ?

Hello Doctor .. I am a male of 27 yrs..My history is, right from the time I know, I have always had a discomfort or a stomach pain since my childhood. Then at age 16, I was diagonised appedicites and operated.But now for the past two years, I have been frequently having a stomach pain at one specific point, thats my right side... a little lower abdominal pain .. I have done all scans, endoscopy, biopsy and what not, to rule out anything and everything. All results seems to be fine. But the pain has never changed. The newer symptoms are, after the first motion in the morning I have a discomfort in my stomach. Out of 10 times, atleast 8 times my stomach reacts to outside food with a dark blackish motion. Though I am not a liker or a frequent outside eater. I smoke very very rare.. maybe just one 2 cigar in a week...and alchohol consumption is maybe once in two months during a gathering.. now I am seriously worried and concerned how to proceed. I have had one of my uncle of the very similar symptom, but later on diagonised to be stomach cancer and expired. now this freaks me even more... Please guide....

welcome to hcm
u r likely to be suffering from IBS ( irritable bowel syndrome)
primary symptoms of IBS are abdominal pain or discomfort in association with frequent diarrhea or constipation
Many different dietary modifications have been attempted to improve the symptoms of IBS.avoid spicy and outside food. include a lot of fibre in your diet.
Medications may consist of stool softeners and laxatives in constipation-predominant IBS and antidiarrheals in diarrhea-predominant IBS
Antispasmodic drugs (e.g., anticholinergics such as hyoscyamine or dicyclomine) may help patients, especially those with cramps or diarrhea.
herbal remedies include peppermint oil
also yaga and psycotherapy can help
