Hello, this is my first time posting on this site. I'm 22 years old and tend to have health anxiety. It goes from one thing to the next. Last month I had found a red splotch on my breast, googled and inflammatory breast cancer came up. I went to 2 different doctors, got an ultrasound and both confirmed that it was not breast cancer. It took a long time for me to accept that. Now this month I had a cold that lasted 9 days. Came back from my vacation this last week and had a weird stomach virus. Then I had a physical on Wednesday feeling fine and had a fever of 100.6. I also noticed sometimes when I brush my teeth my gums will bleed. I looked up both symptoms on google and all I got was Leukemia symptoms. I do not feel yucky, I do not feel fatigued, I do not have pale skin, I do not have a rash or decreased appetite. But I've read a few horror stories of teens saying that they thought they were fine but ended up having the disease. I'm waiting to get labs done as I write this and I'm so nervous. I'm absolutely terrified! Does anyone have any experience of leukemia, does this sound like it? Anything helps, pray/send happy thoughts for good blood tests for me and that I don't get a call telling me that I need to pack a hospital bag
