    Cancer Paranoia

    So I was doing pretty good for a little bit. Then the other day I started being nauseous and being sore all over and alot more tired than usual. And for a month been getting even worse pains in my back. I had a total of around 4 ct scans 1 of my lungs 2 of my abdomen and 1 on my head. I also had radioactive dye Injected (had to sign a waiver agreeing I may get cancer from it) Its been about 10 years since all those testings were done and now I'm scared crap I got cancer from all the tests. I see my doctor on the 6th not sure what to say to him other then Im constantly sore and feel nausea. This may just be all benign pains and symptoms but all that radiation I was around has started spiking my anxiety. I also had a handful of normal xrays and a bunch of mris. I am not a mess yet with my anxiety, I know I can work my brain out of it. But what if its cancer I am 33 year old male if that helps. I don't know what tests to ask for. I also have avoided Google for my symptoms. So I have been keeping my anxiety at a lower level

    That isn’t that much radiation actually. Pilots are exposed to more in a year of flying.

    Re: Cancer Paranoia

    I'm a H&N cancer survivor. Aside from the chemo, I had radiation treatment on my neck 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Enough radiation to literally burn the skin off my neck and turn my throat into mush to the point I could barely swallow. Add to that a CT scan before each treatment to help aim the radiation. All that and it doesn't count all the x rays and scans I've had prior and after. I'm still here and they didn't cause my cancer so...
