Is something really wrong or am I crazy? Help

Well I'm a 19 year old female and I guess it all started when I woke up with a headache behind my right eye I had it all day and figured it was sinuses because I have sinus problems very frequently. Well 2 days later it hadn't gone away and it felt like I had some kind of mass behind my eye and of course I googled it and I diagnosed myself with an occipital tumor.. This was 3 weeks ago. Well after feeling this way for a week and freaking out the entire time my mom took me to an ENT and he put me on amoxicillin and a steroid pack and told me to come back in a week and when I went back he diagnosed me with chronic acute sinusitis. I was wierdly VERY unhappy with what he said and it only left me freaking out more. I was having dizzy spells and I literally thought I was dying. Well I have had this knot under my left ear for a long time. When I was sick it got to be the size of a golf ball and be painful to touch. Since then it as gone way down in size and I can barely feel but I'm so scared I have lymphoma or some other type of cancer. Every one I talk to doesn't believe me and says its all in my head. But my fear of having cancer consumes my every thought and it's gotten where I'm afraid to go to sleep because I'm afraid I won't wake. Every single headache i get i automatically assume its a brain tumor. I google "symptoms" all the time and it's coming between my boyfriend and I. Please help let me know I'm not alone because I feel so alone.. Am I crazy or is something really wrong?
