does this sound like cancer? absolutely terrified

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have a number of symptoms which are ache in my left shoulder area, back pain which comes and goes, dull ache in my legs for weeks now (which started off as stabbing type pains) , itchy breasts with weird blue veins appeared and mottled looking skin, vibrating sensation through bones, pulse points in my body keep pumping hard (especially one on my left side around rib area), and now pains/stiffness in my neck/throat.  

Also I get these feelings of weakness/ heart pumping hard everyday at some point.

I have had a chest x-ray and ECG a month ago which were both fine, and 6 months ago I had similar symptoms though not as bad as now and had a blood test then for infection which was clear as well.  I have just had another blood test for any muscular conditions and waiting for results, but I am more worried about it being cancer.  Please help

    Sorry to hear about your worries

    If you had the scan and test results back all seemed ok I would try to stop worrying

    Anxiety is terrible and magnifies everything

    I am in remission from kidney cancer but being monitored to make sure it didn't spread to my lungs. recently I had a really bad chest infection and guess what i started panicking tht it could be something more sinister. Please try to be positive as if all tests came back ok keep thinking "I'm ok". Good luck and hope this helps.

    Stay happy. \regards Steve

      Hi steve

      Thanks for your advice. I have got to wait until end of the week for this blood test result to come back -doctor has asked for a full blood count, check for anything rheumatic etc so will see what happens.

      Think its because its been going on for what seems like a lifetime (early december) that its freaking me out more but will try to keep telling myself not to panic yet and it does really help having reassurance.

      Hope you manage to stay well.

    this doesn't sound like cancer it sounds more like your anxiety is causing these symptoms if your tests are all coming back clear then maybe you should talk to your doctor about getting help with your anxiety

      Hi Ro


      I too have an incisonal hernia due to a radical nephrectomy. really uncomfortable aren't they.  Still at least we are here to tell the tale as survivors. better than what might have been.i wish you well I must say they seem to have dismissed my hernia as a "you can have an op" but apparentlly only 50/50 success rate. After an 8 hour op and full blood transfusion not relly keen to go under knife so I wil put up with it

      Take care and keep well. Steve.
