In July I got a mucus retention cyst on my tonsil, a small one, every day I would check it - I kept googling to make sure that's what it was and all sites would say that's what it was and it will go away on it's own either in weeks or months. But that wasn't good enough I STILL kept googling until I found ONE site that said that but also added, "Cancer may still be present" That was it, that ONE lone site and all that echoed through my head for months until it went away was, "Cancer may be present" over and over and over again. I was way too scared to go to a doctor so I'd check it daily to see if it would get bigger (3 or 4 times a day sometimes) I figured if it was still there in December when I went for my regular physical I'd tell the doctor then. (It went away - drained or whatever they do, he NIGHT before my appointment!) so even when yo find reassurance if you are like me you will keep looking until you find something bad. Or you will choose the worst thing from a list of 15 things that come up. I haven't googled in almost 4 days and feel like I am doing better mentally.
