    Still peeing and worried.

    I pee quite a bit myself and I pee more when I am nervous or if I am cold. I sometimes go every hour in the morning and less in the afternoon.

    Thyroid Cancer Fear

    My friend who recently turned 55 had thyroid cancer when he was in his 20's and he is fine with no recurrences.

    Cant stop thinking about eye health help

    I once had bad flashes in my eyes and it turned out to be nothing and I thought it was a retinal detachment.
  5. Acceptance is the key. I have had some actual health issues such as a compression fracture of my T-11 vertebrae, an esophageal ulcer, and basal cell carcinoma. Each issue was not exactly pleasant, but I tried to deal with them the best I could. I talked with each respective physician about my condition and that was it. My dermatologist told me during my last visit that medicine is neither 0% or 100%. My concierge internal medicine physician and GI physician told me to not look past today. That is difficult. Uncertainty surrounds our entire lives and of course nothing is guaranteed. All we can do is do the best we can and hope for the best. My mother (may she rest in peace), had 2 interesting sayings about life. One was instead of saying here today, gone tomorrow, she would say, here today, gone today. I remember saying to her, Mom, that is pretty negative and her repsonse was, well thats the way it is. Her other more positive saying was, life is what you make it, which is really true and I try to apply that to my health anxiety. I have a friend of mine who is a psychiatrist in private practive. He has told me that many forms of anxiety have a genetic and environmental component and at times can be difficult to alleviate completely and his advice was also to accept what you have and learn techniques for dealing with it so your life is more enjoyable.
  6. My wife had a CT scan of her sinuses a number of years ago which was ordered by our ENT physician, as she had pain in that area. The results were negative thank goodness and odds are your test will be negative too and good luck too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Heart is racing

    I know it can be a scary feeling when physical symptoms such as what you are having occur. I have had many symptoms over the years, some of which were anxiety related, while others were real. I believe a visit to your physician is in order, to at the very least, help alleviate your fears.
  8. Welcome to the forum. Sounds like nothing serious to me. What you are feeling now is from the cut on the finger.
  9. My ENT physician has told me that temperature changes can affect your inner ears and cause balance issues. He said many cases of dizziness and balance issues are due to ear issues.

    I can't do this anymore

    My wife is a long time pharmacist and she has told me that any medication, whether prescription or OTC, can have side effects. The key is to try not to worry about it, but I know that is easier said then done sometimes.

    Does this look like skin cancer?!

    I am not a physician and can only say what I have been told. My dermatologist told me that nothing in medicine is 0 percent or 100 percent.

    Colon Cancer

    My GI physician said anal cancer is not common. He said it is rare in people under 35 and occurs mostly in people beginning in there 60`s.
  13. My wife a number of years ago had a CT scan of her sinuses ordered by her ENT as she had pain in that area and the test was negative.

    Does this look like skin cancer?!

    According to the Moh's surgeon I saw, you are not correct.
  15. I am glad you are ok. My friend who is 64 urinated visible blood for 3 straight weeks and no cause was found. It mysteriously went away after the 3 week period.
