    First remain calm.and think.positive it may not even be that it's sounds like diverticulitis my mother in law has that she feels full eats in small amounts vomits can't have a bowel movement and feeling sick I would get another opinion on your health issue. She will not even go and the rest come what there wanting her to do she said she is done she is tired we think it's cancer but we won't know till she goes and gets tested. I would just not worry about this just wait on your results and see what they tell you then go from there ok hope this what's your mind. I done already went threw 4 procedures this year and has half of my colon removed and doing great had it done 2 and a half months ago fast recovery.

    Did you try taking a few capsules of activated charcoal ?

    That would solve spoiled food indigestion.

    Activated Charcoal absorbs and neutralize a variety of toxins.

    Did you try taking Pepto Bismol?

    That could relieve you of other gastrointestinal ailments.

    What do you think started all this ? What's your age.

    Consider a test for parasites.

    Good luck

    hey there friend. first, take some deep breaths and try to relax. i think you’re going to be fine! there’s a lot of positives going for you. firstly, you are very young and stomach cancer is nearly unheard of in teenagers. your anxiety could be setting off your gastric problems. if you have problems controlling your worries, this will cause a lot of stress to your digestive system. looking into some therapy or anxiety medication might not be a bad idea. 

    secondly, there are a million reasons to explain away your heartburn and nausea that are not cancer. most of the time these things are idiopathic, AKA, they just happen for no reason at all. you could have some common and treatable disorders like GERD/acid reflux, IBS/IBD or something similar. it could be entirely viral and will pass soon. there are other stomach conditions that can cause your pain that aren’t just cancer. there are many auto immune diseases that cause your symptoms but you have been experiencing this for such a short amount of time and only for the first time....I am willing to bet my bottom dollar you don’t even have an auto immune disease let alone cancer!

    Take care and let us know the good news when your results come back. you will get through this!
