Question: I've had pain in my lower right side that feels like gas bubbles maybe. I've also had some diarrhea too. This has been going on for nearly two weeks off and on. I feel bloated and gassy. I've always had digestive issues.

Brief Answer:
colonoscopy is necessary

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms can be caused by partial bowels obstruction due to some lesion in large intestine. At your age, colon cancer needs to be ruled out at first.
Please do not wait any longer. Visit your doctor and get colonoscopy done.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

Regards.

Detailed Answer:
I know its scary. I do not tell you have colon cancer. I just want you to make sure you do not have it (for your safety). Such symptoms can be also caused by gastrointestinal infection due to bacteria. But even if so, you still should have colonoscopy done.
