I'm really struggling again. I have found out today my mum is very unwell. She is on a two week-wait with suspected uterine cancer. I'm still in shock as I write this. She's 62 and we are very close. A friend of mine has just lost her mum to breast cancer at 61.
I myself have always struggled with health anxiety but this was made far worse by an slightly abnormal smear test last year. The GP was not concerned and I have been invited back the usual time - every three years. However, I am now bleeding a little on and off, particularly after sex. I am petrified. I am on the mini-pill which I know often causes on and off bleeding; it's just the time it tends to happen that I am worried about. I have called my GP surgery today and the nurse is going to call me back tomorrow to discuss. All I keep thinking is; what if I have cancer?
Thank you so much for reading this and helping me.
