I'm really worried I have cancer. Reading those scary medical books only make it worse. Does anyone know the names of testing a doctor performs? I wanted the name so I can research it and have something to go on.

Thanx for writing to me. I hope everything is good with you. Maybe its just lympnodes? I know there all thru ur body. I'm going to the docs thurs, i hope nothing is wrong. Do you have any symptoms other than bumps? I have a lump on my leg and my leg hurts off and on. I have other health problems and I'm not sure what to think, what symptoms go with what, ya know? But once again I hope nothing is wrong, and everything turns out fine for you ... email me, anytime. If you have AIM you could IM me at RavenGoddess03 Hope to hear from you soon..
God Bless.

If its one bit of advice I can offer it is stay away from the medical books. I remember one time my mom brought home a very large book called "When to see the Doctor." Within a two weeks I had diagnosed myself with 4 forms of cancer, diabetes, and several other nasty diseases. I had myself scared to death but I refused to see the Doctor because I knew that he was going to tell me I had cancer or some other life threatening disease. Well I finally went in for a physical and to have a lump checked out. I was as healthy as can be, and that lump was my floating rib. Well after that my mom threw away the book
