If you had an abdominal ct scan, I really don't think you need an endoscopy. You may be looking in the wrong area. Colon can mimic similar symptoms. Ask for a fecal occult test. It is very rare for stomach cancer to present in such a young age. Try not to worry about it for now. Your nerves can get the best of you.

Re: Should I Be Worried About Stomach Cancer At Age 21?

The thing is, i have been to the doc and laughed it off.. cause i was told 100% that it can not happen and has not been seen in my age.. what are the ages for it? what do you mean colon syptoms can mimic? can colon spytoms cause bloating aswell? i know anxiety can do all this.. but i continue to feel unwell.. lost weight.. and only can eat a tiny bit before i am very heavy.. i was told i have gastritis and that does all this.
