The same thing happened to me I went to doctors for seven years straight every one of them told me I was too young to have cancer when I was 38 I went to a gastroenterologist he told me I was too thin and he would be able to feel the tumor but to make me feel better he would do a colonoscopy after Christmas he finally got around to it in February the diagnosis was stage 4 rectal cancer during this time I ran across an 18 year old girl with same problems I was having I made her father take her to Moffitt she had rectal cancer do not screw around with it go to Moffitt or whatever cancer hospital is near you
