Hi there! I'm new here but not new to symptoms a lot of you uys are experiencing. I am 19 years old and a fairly healthy and active teenager. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables as a kid up until now and not a fan of junk food. I have been suffering with my anxiety since I was sixteen to a point where I was on the brink of giving up and taking my own life. Fortunately, I have coped but have bouts of extreme anxiety at times so you can only imagine how scared I am right now. About two months ago, I randomly had stomach pain one night, just the typical "I think I need to go" feeling but for some reason decided to ask Doctor Google about it and stumbled upon, yep you guessed it, Cancer. Now I've been very obsessed with my stools and bowel habits although nothing's really turned up at all. One thing off is that I get random sharp pains in different parts of the stomach usually above my navel or on the right. Sometimes on the left also. It comes and goes and disappears within 30 minutes. It has no intervals and I really get them at the most random moments more so lately that I've been stressed with my internship. It's bearable, just really uncomfortable. I'm still really scared of the possibility of stomach/colon cancer. My family history suggests no cancer at all. Though we do have diabetes but that's with my uncles, no one in the family. One more thing is I've been dx with GERD as I would usually burp with acid. Please talk me down, I feel very alone and scared of bowel cancer or colorectal cancer.
