Possibility of stomach cancer?
I had diarrhea from Thursday til Saturday night, where I was going about 6 times per day, no fever, along with weight loss (I was 215 on wednesday, now I'm 207), and upper abominal/chest tightness along with bloating.  I took Imodium on Saturday night and I didn't really go yesterday at all.  My stomach would still get bloated after meals though and I didn't eat much yesterday.  Today, I got a Jamba Juice beverage to get my system going to see if I was going to have normal stool, and my stool looked like my chewed-up chicken breast from last night and what looked like mucus.  I had a CBC count, thyroid blood test (don't remember the exact name), and Metabolic panel done with normal results.  Could I have stomach cancer with a normal CBC count?  Are my symptoms really even stomach cancer symptoms?  If not, what else could this be?  I'm seeing my doctor on wednesday, but until then, I would like to figure out the possibilities.

Hi there!

This looks like a regular acute GI infection. Cancer would usually present with symptoms present over a much longer time. I would suggest taking plenty of fluid with added salt and natural sugar, to prevent yourself from getting dehydrated. If the symptoms do not seem to get better in 5-7 days it is advised to see a primary care physician for appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
