Scared re Cancer

Hey guys, posted a few weeks ago as my health anxiety is off the roof. I am so scared all the time ( not eased that i do really feel unwell or in pain a lot; but all doctors visits are fine... nothing to worry about etc.) I also have thrombocytopenia which worries me that will lead to leukemia/lymphoma. For past month i had laryngitis and since my throat has not gone back to normal, always feel like i need to clear my throat; frequent blocked nose/ inflamed throat and tickley and an flimflammed lymph on side of my throat. Also i hiccup a lot. So worried either it is lymphoma or stomach cancer or throat cancer or something similar.. anyone had this symptoms before?? should i be worried? Also feel bloated loads but that's been there for years... sorry ... going mad here and trying to make sense of it all. Any words of wisdom will help greatly x

Hi Ivie, sorry you have to deal with all of that stuff. Are you on any anxiety medications? I'm on Lexapro which has a side effect of a runny nose which I deal with 24/7. Perhaps some of your symptoms might be related to medication.
