Petrified I have Colorectal cancer- Health anxiety, can anyone relate?

Hi All, For the past 9/10 weeks now, I have noticed my stools have a strange odor and occasionally have mucus, the odor does not change, no matter what I eat, it remains the same weird smell. I have had mild abdominal pain which started in the upper middle, and now is in the lower left. I have recently had blood tests, everything came back normal except my infection markers which were slightly raised and white blood cell count. I am absolutely terrified I have cancer,  I have not been sleeping and don't feel like anyone is taking me seriously :(
