Prolonged period and cramps

Hi there, I’m 27 years old female. I’ve been having lower stomach pain occasionally. My period hasn’t stopped fr months. Which means I’m having constant period fr about 6 months now, even if it stop it stops fr few weeks n continue bleeding. I went to a gyne n did ultrasound, they didn’t have much to say. Should I be worried as few of my doctor friends are suggesting this could be cancer as my family does HV cancer history, my dad passed away from liver cancer last year.
