So, I'm having a sleepless night with my health anxiety. For years, I have focused on getting lymphoma. I don't know why I have such a horror of it. I am a reasonably healthy 30/f with no family history of cancer, other than lung cancer my grandfather got from exposure to chemicals.
Anyway, I have been taking lexapro and it has helped some. But the past few days I have been driving myself nuts. I have a little lump under the skin by my groin, which I discovered about two days ago. I have always been afraid of lymphoma but never had an actual lump so I feel like this time this is it for sure.
My husband, who is the picture of sanity, is unconcerned and he always refers back to the other times when "THIS WAS IT" and it turned out to be nothing. But I can't shake it.
Is a groin lump DEFINITELY cancer??? I don't have any other symptoms, except some minor back aches on occasion and some tiredness due to lack of sleep!
Sorry to vent, but I had to vent somewhere/
