Hi. I m a 25 year old male with a
From past 4 months, I've been having flat stools consistently. I've taken at home FIT test 3 times in the past 3 months and it's been negative all 3 times. My weight has been almost constant from past 6 months. However from past 2 months I've been feeling feverish (no fever actually) and fatigued every day. I've been having chest tightness and excessive burping as well. I've not had any abdomen pain as such though.
In the past 4 months I've also had an array of tests done:
Blood tests, echo, ekg, CT scan abdomen, thyroid test, ultrasound abdomen, endoscopy, pulmonary function test. They've all been normal.
Really worried could it be colon cancer? :( :( I've scheduled a colonoscopy for XXXXXXX 14 2019. But it's like a month away.
Any help would be appreciated!
It sounds completely benign
What you describe sounds like a malabsorptive or inflammatory condition. What types of endoscopy have you had performed? Gastroscopy or colonoscopy? And with or without biopsies?
I can assure you, that you do not have colorectal cancer.
Have you had fecal cultures for e. coli, yersinia, salmonella, clostridiae, etc.?
It is important to rule out malabsorption
It is important to rule out malabsorption, and that is best done by gastroscopy with biopsies. The colonoscopy you are scheduled for should also be with biopsies.
Cancer is virtually impossible my friend.
