Panic disorder: Chin tingling is most likely to be from anxiety and panic disorder. The chance of it being due to a cancer is extremely remote. You should see your doctor if it doen't go away.

Doubt cancer: I suspect you are hyperventilating. This is not the usual presentation of cancer. Your physician can rule this in or out, along with hypocalcemia and some other problem. You already have a good relationship with the physicians who have prescribed our rx's. Keep up surveillance for breast, colon and (if a smoker) lung cancer; this is your best bet for cancer to be less fearful.
