Hm let's see:

Bone cancer
Bladder cancer
Brain tumor
Esophagus cancer
Colon cancer
Ovarian cancer (was totally convinced until I demanded multiple tests)
Lymphoma ( still Kinda my current)
Blood clot
Leukemia
Blood poisoning
Stroke

Had none of them that I know of...

Oops forgot breast cancer and liver cancer.


The ones I was most convinced of were brain tumor, ovarian cancer, esophagus cancer, and lymphoma. Lymphoma fear was and is the absolute worst. Second place goes to ovarian cancer which I cried obsessively about and knew I was going to die.:p turns out I don't have it. They say I don't have lymphoma either but well see

Ovarian cancer, gum cancer, skin cancer, MS, at one time I was positive I was going to have a heart attack at any moment. (I'm 24) Lupus, glaucoma, hmm maybe that's all. I'm sure there are more, that's all I can think of right now.

Despite the fact this isn't funny, there's an element of humor in it for me since the list has had so many things on it through the years.  I thought about it and said to myself, "geez."

appendicitis, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, heart problems, brain tumor, MS, ulcer, lymphoma, bone cancer....oh sure, there's more.  And that's when I said aloud to myself, "GEEZ." ;*)

Cardiac fears was my first big HA freakout. The next one was a brain tumor that led to an MRI (those things are expensive). After that it was testicular cancer because of a lump on one of mine, and led to an ultrasound and then a urologist appointment because I didn't trust the ultrasound. My most recent and current fear is melanoma, and I'm finding it quite hard to break.

Pancreatic Cancer. Pancreatic Cancer. Pancreatic Cancer. Pancreatic Cancer. Over and over again I go to that. I also had a heart worry, but that was put to rest by some very expensive and thorough tests. So back to Pancreatic Cancer. My stomach and colon cancer fears have also been eliminated by tests. But I still have upper abdominal area pain, mainly to the right side, and no gall stones found with ultrasound, only a slightly fatty liver. What is causing my pain? I always go back to worrying about Pancreatic Cancer.
