    I fear I have colon cancer or something, my symptoms are troubling

    I'm a 23-year-old black male and around March I began to have off and on frequent bowel movements like every 2 days or even 1 day. I've suffered from diarrhea and constipation and sometimes my poop just sits in my rectum with no urge. I typically found myself passing gas a lot throughout the day and shortness of breath that goes away after I use my inhaler. My poop is very inconsistent but never bloody sometimes formed like a sausage and others small like thin. I eat normally and never feel bloated or in pain after passing a bowel. I went to the doctors twice inn 2020 and got an x-ray and blood taken and colon cancer usually takes year's to develop but I'm unsure

    I suggest you see a gastroenterologist and request a colonoscopy to see if you might have an IBS, IBD or whatever and to confirm you don't have polyps that might be a precurser to cancer.
