Hey there. I m a little worried right now! My dad had testicular cancer , and my mom s side of the family is prone to diabetes. I m 20, and when I was a teen I used to abuse laxatives in hopes of being thinner. I was obese back then, and although I am still *just* slightly overweight, I am otherwise healthy. Also earlier in my life my family went through a money crisis so all we had to eat for months (if not years) was cereal. On Wiki they say cereal has a connection with pancreatic cancer . I also used to use sweeteners alot. So I ve been having upper abdominal disconfort ever since, and I thought it is IBS. Except that the disconfort is on my upper tummy, where the pancreas and stomach are. Oat porridge helps relieve it. They say that with pancreatic cancer the disconfort is lessened by leaning forward and made worse by leaning back, but with me it s the opposite. I taste my urine every morning to assess my health (yucky, I know) and this morning it came out sweet, which scared me. That never happened before, and I read it s a symptom of diabetes. I have no other diabetes or pancreatic cancer symptoms whatsoever. No back pain , no jaundice, etc. I hope someone can help!

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
