Hi and thanks for the query,It is most likely that it is just your anxiety. At this age you have very less chances of colon cancer and these are not the symptoms of cancer. For your reassurance i would suggest you should visit your GP to have thorough physical examination and stool RE to rule out any disease. These symptoms are mostly anxiety related. Try to overcome your fears , eat healthy diet, drink plenty of fluids and exercise you would feel much better.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.

Thanks for reply,
Anxiety would have bad effect on your health, try to overcome this. You should get your stool routine examination and full examination by your GP so that if there is any disease it can be diagnosed and treated accordingly. You are not at risk of any cancer right now. Do not get worried.
