I'm a 52 year old white male. Two years ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This past February I was urinating more than I thought I should. So I went to my Doctor. She did a urinalysis. They found blood in my urine and sent me to a urologist. The urologist did another urinalysis and a rectal check. There was no blood this time and the rectal check was normal. They had me come back for a CT Scan of my abdominal and pelvic area, a PSA blood draw and a cystoscopy. They said everything came back normal. I accepted this for awhile but fear over took me and I began doubting my Doctor. Since this time I've had 2 CT Scans of my head, 3 chest xrays, and several blood test. They say they all are normal. Every time I have anything that I think is a symptom I run in thinking I have cancer. My Doctor thinks I'm suffering from "Health Anxiety." She put me on the antidepressant Effexor Xr 37.5 mg. Which I think makes me spaced out. Do you think I should trust the urologist and my normal Doctor? That its all in my head? Are they obligated to tell me the truth? And do you think they've done enough test?
