Ovarian Cancer fear- so scared right now!!!!
« on: June 24, 2014, 11:20:42 PM »
Okay ladies, I need your help. Well not just me but also my friend. We're freaked out about ovarian cancer. She's 18 and I'm 21 and neither of us have ever been sexually active and we also have never been checked. I have gone to the women's doctor and they wouldn't check me because I wasn't 21 yet and I haven't been sexually active. I don't plan on it for a few more years, till I get married that is, so I'm scared I have it and I'm going to die  :traurig001: my friends symptoms are: she has to per all the time. That's it! Mine are more serious: I have to pee all the time, I have pain in that area when I lay on it, and I'm tired a lot. Any ideas or is this just my hypochondriasis going crazy???

Amy... You are jumping from illness to illness.  What does that tell you?

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.

I have to say I don't think I've ever heard of women as young as you two getting ovarian cancer.

Bladder infections are common in women your age though.

I had eye-twitching at one point and of course, went charging off to the doctor.

Before she knew of my hypochondriac tendencies, she told me it was due to dehydration.

Hey thanks Caroline1902! Come to think of it I haven't been drinking as much water as I used to. I'm gonna get right on that along with other steps to keep up being hydrated. In fact, just last week my Pastor's wife's father was sent to the hospital and they told him he had a brain aneurysm.....ends up.....he was just dehydrated! Crazy how being dehydrated does so much to our bodies that makes us think the worst....even doctors!

There is no "may" about it.  You have health anxiety.  The odds of getting ovarian cancer in your early 20s are remarkably low.
