I have noticed a massive change (weight loss) in myself without having any change of diet or exercise, now worrying?

Hello my name (… female) I am almost 21 years old, for the past year or so I have noticed a massive change in myself, I have went from being 12 stone down to 8 without having any change of diet or exercise and this was in the space of about 5/6 months I put it down to stress with college but I am no longer under stress. I have always had an issue with my weight so when I first started to lose it I was sort of happy but then it got worrying. I have now started noticing bruises that randomly appear all over my legs without any injury and I am constantly pale in colour. I have been tested for an iron deficiency and thyroid but they came back clear. what could this be?

hi
unexplained weight loss can be due to hormonal changes at your age, inadequate calories intake or digestion issues.
malignancies or lymphomas also can present in similar fashion.
consult a physician.
