Hi,
there is a probability of suffering from diabetes. Your symptoms match with the disease entity.Anyway you should do at least a fasting and 2 hr postprandial blood sugar ( after 75 gm of glucose intake). At present none of your symptoms goes in favor of cancer. So do not worry go for the basic investigations first. Take care.
