    Stomach Cancer symptoms

    IM 23 years old and I use smokeless tobacco. I do drink, but only about once a month but when I do its usually 6+ drinks. I had sharp stomach pains for about three weeks so I went to the ER because I have no Insurance. They took blood and urine and did a CT scan. They beleive it is Gastritis but never gave me a definite answer. That was about six days ago, since then my stomach pain has decreased but now I have general discomfort and feel full 24 hrs a day whether I have eaten or not. Im trying to save up money right now to go to a GI doc but until then I would love some advice. Im so ******* scared, I cant focus on my job or anything in my life right now and sometimes on the verge of tears when it really hits me. Any advice/ help or anything would be very greatly apprecited. Thanks

    Re: Stomach Cancer symp

    It's extremely rare to get stomach cancer so young. The chances are about one in a million. You should buy a lottery ticket because you are more likely to win money than have stomach cancer. You would have had to start drinking and using smokeless tobacco when you were two or three years old to have cancer now.

    Re: Stomach Cancer symp

    You need to get the physician that took care of you in the ER or your physician to tell you the results of the bloodwork and other tests that they did. You may have had pancreatitis. It is important that you try and keep irritants like tobacco juice, alcohol out of your system right now. Especially alcohol! At least wait until you get in to see the gastroenterologist.

    Sincerely, searchin

    Re: Stomach Cancer symp

    Thanks for your help. The reason I was worried is because I have been frequently using Camel Snus because its made so you can swallow it which is good for my line of work(server/bartender). Thats why I was so scared that it was cancer because thats only about a two year old product and theres no research out about it yet, and I just jumped to conclusions that it might give a person cancer rapidly because of the ingestion. Im still not 100% convinced to be honest but my mind is def more at ease, I dont think about every minute of the day anymore but there still are times when the panic strikes. I do appreciate your replies and Im thankful that you took the time to answer me and not just blow me off as a hypochondriac, which I probably am...Thanks again, Andrew (SqrL)

    HI MY NAME IS TONY,I was just recently told I have stomach cancer,which took about 3 week,s to find out.They first though it was an ulcer which I had year,s ago.The pain is a burning sensation in the center of my stomach just above the navel.I will be 75 tommorrow.After looking up lot,s of info.I read that men,s average for stomach cancer is 70,the symptom,s are simular and at the start the pain is very mild.
    Early stage,s of stomach cancer you may have ,indigestion,stomach discomfort a bloating feeling after eating,nausea and loss of appetite. If your getting a burning in your stomach it could be an ulcer.the way they definitly found out for me was sending a TUBE DOUN YOUR THROUGHT to take a look.I don,t think it,s cancer because of your young age.GOOD LUCK TONY
