Being 23, cancer is still a very real risk. It could be liver cancer, or pancreatic cancer. Pray its not pancreatic, since thats pretty well the most deadly form. Also, if you are at the stage where pancreatic cancer is causing Juandice, you're pretty well screwed.
Damnit, it's not pancreatic cancer! The stress you're causing the fella by saying that is probably worse than whatever he has. There are less than 50 cases under age 30 in the US each year. By those odds it's more likely he has an alien ass probe in his anus, so he should worry about that first. Cancer has exponential risk with age, digestive system cancer in particular is a 40+ disease.
he could be one of those 50 for this year :evil: :p

Probably nothing. If it doesn't go away see your doc. Jaundice can also mean Hepatitis A but you would be REALLY sick if you had that.

Jaundice usually shows up in both eyes, and is uniform. Sounds like something else, did you get hit in eye recently? May just be a bruise running its course.

Pics.

I was thinking it could be a pingueculae.

I fell off a jetski and the water peeled back my eyelid and hit my eyeball and made it swell up. It turned yellow and got really thick. The membrane on my eye was swollen and yellow. Very gross.

This is probably the result of the remainder of an infection, or even some trauma to the eye (eye brusining will turn yellow when healing). If you did anything that could cause blood vessels to pop this could also result.
