Josh,

There are hundreds of different types of cancers, and they each have their own symptoms. It would probably make more sense for you to list your symptoms; then maybe someone can point you in the right direction. Also, have you seen a doctor yet?

Josh,
I promise not to yell, LOL!

Did you by any chance have a cold or virus just before you started feeling this way? You could have mononucleosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or a low-grade virus that hasn't gone away yet.

It's quite unlikely that you have cancer, but certainly if you continue to feel this way I would think you should get checked out. Feeling lousy isn't any fun!

A few other thoughts - fatigue & exhaustion can also be caused by increased stress or anxiety.

And, feeling tired all the time is a major classic symptom for depression. The trick here is that you don't always have to have a reason to be depressed, like a death in the family or losing a job. Sometimes your brain chemistry can do that all by itself!

I'm with Ruth, glad to hear you'll be going to the doctor so that he can start his detective work to figure out the cause of your exhaustion. Try not to worry about cancer quite yet and let the doctor narrow things down for you.
Keep in touch here and do let us know how you're doing!
Bj
