It's awful isn't it, I've had blood tests but no scans or other things that other people seem to have, my doctor doesn't feel it's necessary to. Cancer is one of my fears, along with others, I can feel ok for a little while after seeing doctor but the fears soon return. Are you seeing a therapist? X

Hello. I am exactly the same as you. I think am I dying or is it anxiety! Message me if you want privately

You could have scan after scan but then a week after you would think something has changed or they have missed something. I am just trusting the doctors you have too

Its health anxiety, its in your mind. You need to keep these thoughts out of your mind, I suggest keep yourself busy all the time and take proper rest.

Taking proper medication and therapy can help you feel better.
