I've never written in a forum so this is a first time but anxiety is killing me..This is my story: Two weeks ago I went in a journey and travelled about 10h by car and train; when I arrived there, I got constipated for 2-3 days in which I eliminated only few small and thin stools-that started to worry me because I learnt that pencil stools are patognomonic for colon tumors. After that I got more and more loose stools and by this week they've become greenish, somewhere like the 5 type in the Bristol scale, 2-3 times a day. I don't feel any pain only a persistent discomfort on the left side of the abdomen and I never noticed any sign of blood. Even if I know the risk is minimal, I'm quite scared about the possibility of a left colon cancer. I'm a 23 years old male, with no history of colon cancers or poliposis in my family, and I'm not overweight. I'm planning to go to a specialist if the symptoms persist because I'm getting very stressed about this possibility. What do you think?
P.S. Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker.
