Standing in front of microwave all day - CANCER?

I work as a food demonstrator where I am given a small little 6 foot long table and I stand behind it for 7 hours selling the product I'm assigned. Today I was given a product which required the use of a microwave, and seeing how small the table was you can imagine how close I was to it all day.

Here's a diagram of my "office":


I had to microwave food about 20 times (each time for 2.5 minutes) during the course of my 7 hour shift. I made sure to stand diagonal to the microwave everytime to minimize my risk of cancer. I'm really scared now because I'm sure I just exposed myself to a lot of radiation today.

It's not that kind of radiation.
