Cancer: Colon Message Board

Cancer: Colon Board Index

I am a 27 yo male last year diagnosed with gallstones and fatty liver due to being overweight. Gallstones cause no problem so surgeon said no need to take it out. Recently I have been feeling constipated and then diarahrea and back and forth. I felt like I could never fully empty my bowel for about a week but that has all but gone. When I do go I have thin stools and sometimes ribbon like stools. No blood and stool is of normal color.

When I was severely constipated I went to the ER because I couldnt handle it anymore and he did a CT scan of my colon. The ER doctor said everything is normal no backed up feces, no lumps or masses or anything. Said it may be a touch of diverticulitis - but I am still worried.

No history of any cancers in my family except for an aunt who had throat cancer (life-long smoker.) What are the chances of me having colon cancer or am I getting myself worked up over nothing? I think tomorrow I am going to call a gastro and set an appointment.
