Either have cancer or anxiety disorder or both?

Posted , 6 users are following.

so about a year ago I was stupid enough to remove a few of my moles with apple cider vineger (found the method online) and it worked, even though a few came back. now about two months ago i had a new mole i didnt really like so I did the same thing (and it worked) but then I started panicking because some of my other moles and other random areas in my body started itching. (this was around the same time as final so I had even more stress from that). then for a whole week I felt really dizzy and could barely go outside or anything other than laying down without feeling weird, also I saw a few moles on my hip were changing that really freaked me out. I went to the doctors a couple times (didnt tell them about me removing moles) but they said all my moles look fine and that the headaches and weird feeling will go away. they didnt, and eventually I got the moles that were changing removed, and the biopsy for them came back fine (they were normal). 

for the last two months I havent been feeling like myself at all and sometimes when im outside i feel like im losing touch with reality (depersonalization??). smoking marijuana helps sometimes, but at other times it makes me feel even worse. I should also mention that ive been smoking a lot more in the past month or so. there was also one time about half a year ago i took LCD that didnt affect me, I think it was bad (is it possible it ruined my brain?)

yesterday the moles that I removed started itching (not too badly, but enough to give me anxiety)

I also have a tingling feeling in the back of my head at the moment

I want to go to a doctor but he will probably say its nothing...

is it possible I have cancer?? or is it just my anixety? if i even have anxiety?

    Hoestly, the things we do to ourselves, lol! I'm not making light of your concerns by the way.

    Now then, NEVER again mess around with your moles! Okay? smile That's a job for the doctors. Online advice  for such things is downright absurd.

    Having said that the doctors have checked you out and all is well. The moles are probably itching because you are focused upon them and you have scared yourself. All the other nasty sensations are a product of your anxiety..common symptoms I might add, to all anxiety sufferers.

    Please stop imagining you have cancer or you will throw yourself into a panic and your anxiety symptoms will worsen. I have moles and as I've grown older have got more. Mosy people have them, they're just there so stop looking at them with a critical eye, okay?

    If you took LCD then I hope you ;learned a lesson from it. No good ever came of taking rubbish like that, and I doubt smoking pot does either.

    Eat well and healthily, look after your body in the right way and it will look after you!

    It is nothing wrong with a second opinion. Some dermatologist are more aggressive when it comes to treatment than others. However, you might anxious in regards of the unknown and that might be giving you the other symptoms. I hope this help. Good luck!

    You should see a doctor that specializes in skin diseases. And tell him about removing moles if that's what they were. Many moles are so deep. And that you are getting new moles. Maybe some aren't moles. Any doctor can remove a mole but you need a doctor who will analyze your moles

    Not a med person but I know first hand anxiety prone people find all sorts of things to worry about when it comes to the health issues. Personally I think that is why we have anxiety.  Overthink over worry. Can't take anything in stride. Usually very dedicated etc. just my thoughts.  Those who go on and don't think much SEEM to have a better lift??

    It seems you don't have skin cancer so that's a bonus.

    It sounds to me like typical anxiety stuff. All very common with anxiety, as all of us here know first hand. After ten days of my mind telling me horror stories about my body, I was so very terrifies that I would have a stroke or go nut that I went to urgent care...a wreck!! A doctor saw me right away and put me on an anti anxiety med that within a week and two dosage increases, I was calm enough to thin clearly about how I could help myself. That help, and realizing what I was dealing with happened right here.

    You are in the right place, now consider if getting on the right meds, at least for a while, is the right thing.

    Im getting you have many moles. This is an obsession. Ocd. I have read about the apple cider vinegar its only  the top layer you are really removing. You are irrating your skin so yes it will itch. Wouldnt all this be easier with a dermatologist? You need ocd therapy right away and maybe some meds to help with it. Right now the ocd is focusing in your skin but who knows whats next. Put some antibiotic cream on the itchy moles as itch means inflammation so they dont get infected. You are going to cause issues that are unnessary. It is NOT cancer.

      If the dermotologist tell you there fine ask if they can all be removed anyway. It might be costly but they do it. Its cosmetic at that point.

    You made me laugh,oh my. I had anxiety also, so I know what your saying. Now please do not remove moles yourself. Good for doc to do that. Weed  may help you calm down, but LSD does not work the first time, so I'm told, and I'm glad it didn't for you, because you have anxiety and  doing that will send you to the ER,cause you will freak yourself out. Your head thingy is anxiety also. Please go to your family doc and you can take a daily antidepressant, and feel great. Wouldn't that be fabulous. For some reason I think your a funny person. I sure hope you take my advice and go see your doc.cheesygrin

      Does weed calm you down? I was okay with it until the anxiety hit, then it made me have such disgusting, awful and paranoid thoughts, I quit totally, and haven't had them since...( just the ordinary anxiety nasties occasionally.)lol
