I have been scared for months and have not reached a diagnosis. Here are my symptoms: Occasional blood and mucus in stool, constipation, random pains in anal area, back pain, leg pain, stomach/abdominal pain, gas, pressures in stomach. I have searched all of the possibilities of these symptoms and they all point to cancer, nothing else. I'm 19 years old. Doctors keep saying that "im too young" no one is too young for cancer. My gastroenologist thinks it is just a "constipation" issue. A constipation issue surely wouldnt cause all of these symptoms. I go back to him on June 15th I'm hoping I will finally get a referral for a colonoscopy as that is the only way I can get a diagnosis. I'm shaking as I write this because I'm so scared and just want to be healthy and happy again. I hate this so much.
