Dear XXXXXXX,
Thanks for contacting XXXXXXX
Your symptoms involving bladder and bowel along with stress do point towards IBS. In your history there are no definite points suggesting cancer. Though other problems related to digestive and urinary system may be there.
I think you should follow your physician advise, who can investigate your problems in a systematic way and reach a conclusion. Routine blood tests, urine examination, ultrasound examination etc. should clarify your condition further.
I hope my explanation satisfies and relieves you. If you have any further query you can get back to me again.
Best wishes.
