Re: anxiety with fear of breast cancer
Do you or did you kow of someone close to you that has had or going through breast cancer?
I looked after my Grandad through cancer and he died quite quickly I was only 17. It shocked me to the core, and after that i became cancer phobic. I was really bad for most of my adult life till i had my own child and i seemed to get a little less worried about every twinge i suffered. I know how you feel though, but you could look at getting some therapy as its really just an over active anxious mind. Talk to you Doc, not about another symptom you have regarding cancer, but about your obsession with cancer, and if he/she can steer you towards getting rid of these fears and concentrating on something other than fact you think you have cancer. Good luck.
