A friend of mine got cancer when she was 29. I have worried about getting cancer ever since - im now 54! Lost both mum and dad to cancer - my dad last november. I take bio-identical estrogen and progesterone. I took my estrogen for too many days and during the break period had a bleed. i was told by doctor not to restart if still bleeding (I got that wrong) so didn't restart estrogel. starting bleeding again so went to doctors who told me to restart the estrogel and progesterone. i did that and bleeding stopped but because of pain in tummy and post menapausal bleed she has referred me to hospital to rule out ovarian cancer. last 2 weeks have been terrible. My abdomin was tender during the bleed but has remained so. my appnt is this Wed 8/10/14. i am so worried i can barely function. if i hadn't had the bleed i wouldn't have thought about ovarian cancer now i can't stop thinking about it. 3 weeks ago i thought i had a melanoma which proved to be nothing. this site helped me realise i am not alone and i read the 'health anxiety' leaflet by the nhs and that has helped a little. i don't want to spend the rest of my life worrying about cancer! tx for reading
