Need help...

For the past few weeks, I have had horrible pain on my upper abdomen in different sections. My stool color was brown and light brown. But today, the stool looks like it's brown turning to yellow. I saw yellow clumps on the toilet paper too.

I went to the hospital for numerous tests.

Blood tests were normal.
Full blood count is normal.
Blood sugar is normal.
Blood pressure is normal.
X-rays were normal.
Abdominal ultrasound was normal.

Is the yellowish-brown stool, something I should worry about? I'm worried about pancreatic cancer. I'm a 28 year old male. Non-smoker and rare drinker.

Very often its to do with what you eat, have you eaten anything spicy last day or two, do you take b12 as that can do it, as can other supplements .

I have avoided spicy foods for a long while, as it agitated my stomach. The B12 intake is consumed mostly from my everyday breakfast of high-fiber bran flakes.

Sounds like this could be a Gallbladder issue or a liver issue.

What's your daily diet like?  Have you done any dietary changes recently?

Went to the ER and had blood tests for any liver and gallbladder abnormalities. Everything is normal. The stool might be my change of diet. All smiles. :-)
