Oh bless you I totally know what you mean. Ive had a swollen node under one ear since I had glandular fever 14 years ago. People can see it and comment on it, as do doctors.  I just say it can't be that serious because its been like it for years.
Its mad how selective we are about what we worry about isnt it?   
It would be great if we could be hypnotised to not fear illness and death

It's the afternoon where you are so if you can, go and give your children a big cuddle or if you're on your own put some really loud music on and go for a long walk. You need to get away from the internet  for a while and physically tire yourself out.
To live with this extreme anxiety means we are not living at all x

Its much worse for all of us when we are on our own. Then our minds can run away with us. Distraction is really the only thing that helps me

Definitely don't!!  Vacation is a good way to reset your mind.  I always catastrophize before a vacation so I totally get it.

The good news is that BC is NOT typically associated with breast tenderness.  :)

More than anything else, anxiety is the embodiment of "give it an inch and it will take a mile."  OK, lets say you cancel this vacation - because of a diagnosis you don't have - where does it end?  How much more of your life will you cede to your anxiety?

Also, a bit harsh so I apologize in advance, but the title of your post is "Should i cancel our vacation" not your vacation but our vacation.  Why would you deprive your family of their vacation and pleasant memories to feed your anxiety seems a might tad on the selfish side.

I truly hope you take the first step towards beating anxiety by not letting it steal your family's vacation.

Best of luck

My kids memories are the reason I haven't, & probably won't, cancel.

I would never do that to them. However, the feelings to do so are there.
