So off and on the past few months, I've been leas regular than usual (TMI I know). I'm no constipated because it's just more days between each BM.

Additionally, I'm getting periods of really bad gas that sometimes last for up to 12 hrs. I lost about 13 lbs since August, bit have steadied out.

I'm 35 so I know it's rare at my age, but a classmate of mine just passed away from this exact cancer.

Is this anxiety or something more?
Sorry for the typos. I sent this on my phone and I have a large cut on one thumb.

Sounds like IBS to me or even the natural changes our body goes through. I recently went through a few weeks of constipation after having been regular (daily) for a long while. then it just corrected itself.

At 35 the stats say 1 - 10,000 for CC (male) and less for female. Unless you have a family history of CC, especially occurring under age 50, it is way unlikely. Still, can't hurt to mention it to your doctor at your next regular doctor appointment.

Thanks. Just always assume the worst because my symptoms always turn up Colorectal cancer online.
