Hi, I am new to this website and have been suffering with hypochondria for a little over a year now. I was convinced that I had a brain tumor several months ago and had a bunch of tests done. Everything was fine, and the doctor also suggested that I have complete blood work (to see if my anxiety was being caused by an over active thyroid or something). All of my blood work came back completely fine.
So fast forward to several days ago, and I have been absolutely convinced that I have lymphoma or something else is wrong with me. the left side of my jaw has been really painful (i think from chewing too many cliff bars) and I started poking around on the left side of my neck. I was sure that I felt a lump, so I continued to poke around and now it feels slightly bigger (i can't really pinpoint it) and more painful. I made the mistake of googling symptoms for lymphoma and even though I don't really have any of the symptoms besides the swollen lymph node; I am convinced that there is something wrong. I guess I am convinced that I have found something wrong and my obsession is to catch it early on before it progresses.
