Iron Overload /weight loss

Hi I wonder if there is anyone that can help with my situation...for the past 3 years I have lost weight, vomiting, bowel trouble, constant nausea, noting showed up in barium meal or endoscopy...2 years ago...my doctor has now found a iron overload that she says is through the roof....i am being rushed for colonoscopy...and bone marrow sample...liver biopsy......as she says i carry no gene for hemochromatosis.... this means they are now suspecting cancer after leaving me so long to suffer...I am only 26....and all I can do is wait for consulttant to call me in as my GP says she has never seen an iron overload like it....does anyone know anything on this..or it being related to cancer?

many thanks if you can help.
