Cancer phobia Please help!!

Hi everyone. I am new to this board and feel like I know everyone. My phobia started 6 yrs ago when I lost my mother and mother-in-law within 8 months of each other. They both died of cancer. So, can you guess what my phobia is? You got it Cancer!! I am convinced with every ache and pain that I have cancer. It totally stinks. It's been really bad since I turned 40 last year. I have had a new ailment every week I swear. Right now my abdomen is sore and I just finished my period which was lighter than normal. Now, in reality, I'm thinking that my period was lighter because I had been taking alot of Motrin and muscle relaxers for a back injury and my abs hurt because I just had my period and am now ovulating. But, in non-reality world, I think I have abdominal cancer or ovarian cancer. Also, the bone on my right leg between my knee and ankle is sore in a couple of spots. Now I think I have bone cancer. This is driving me (and everyone else) crazy. I also look at my two kids ages 6 and 4 and wonder if they will be okay if something really does happen to me. This is a horrible way to live. Now, if you were me and had these symptoms, would you think you had cancer? Please someone give me some help. I'm getting desperate. Thank you.
