Firstly, there is no age for cancer. Cancer can strike anyone at any time no matter what age they are. I'm not saying this to scare you, but I know some people are under the impression that cancer only strikes once you're older. It's not true.

I replied to your first post in Pregnancy & Childcare, so everything I'm going to say is basically just reiterating that. Obviously, we're not doctors here at TeenHelp. We're just lovely volunteers who spend our spare time helping people. If you're truly concerned, your best bet would be to consult a doctor or someone with a medical history/education. This could really be anything, from gastritis (inflammation of the stomach) to appendicitis. So, see a doctor to ease your mind.

I agree with Shannon. There's not much to go off of here so it could be several things. Cancer? Hm...not likely. MOST times a tumor from cancer is not painful. There are some exceptions though.

It could just be a gas bubble, or appendicitis, or just a sensitive and sore area. We cannot diagnose you here. So if you really want to know, see a doctor. You can go to Planned Parenthood, usually real cheap or for free, for an exam. They can then recommend you get an ultrasound done if they feel it is necessary. Or, see your regular doctor if you have one.
