Suffer from gas problems, pain in the abdomen. Do I have cancer?

Hey doctor,
I have a problem of gas in my stomach from last 7 months. I get noices from my stomach sometimes.And it starts everytime I eat and I have to go to toilet 3 times next morning. I had consulted Physician who said its due to stress which I am taking but from last week there is slight pain in left abdomen but it is very little. Hope I am not suffering from Cancer although doctors over here have clearly said that it is all due to stress.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
welcome to Healthcare Magic.

You appear to have symptoms are related to stress and depression. Depression can manifest with not only psychological symptoms but with a variety of physical symptoms also like: gas problem, IBS like symptoms, dyspepsia and medically unexplained somatic symptoms like abdominal pain etc.

Excessive fear of cancer in-spite of reassurance by physician is a symptom of stress and depression, specially in presence of normal investigations.

It is better to get evaluated by psychiatrist and start treatment accordingly. For long term control of depression following measures are helpful: relaxation exercise, medicines like SSRIs and non drug treatment like CBT.

Same time do some relaxation exercise like daily brisk walk, yoga and breathing exercise, which will help you in rapid recovery.

Wish you all the best.

Dear ritti,
as per your gas in your stomach for long time . There are many cause of abdominal distension. If you have distension on stomach due to anxiety , there might be some blenching or brash broth on mouth and epigastric pain. long time abdominal distension might be one of the symptom in gynecological cancer too. so if you are of above 40 and married . please do screening for it. More than 90 percent gynecological cancer can be ruled out by doing abdominal ultrasound and PAP smear test.
