That is the curse of having health anxiety. Normal bodily sensations and abnormal bodily sensations all are perceived as signs of illness... making it very difficult for either the patient or the doctor to tell when the patient is actually sick (other than suffering the sickness of health anxiety). The patient must teach herself which of her pains, her bumps, her sniffles, etc., are normal.

Excellent response by Dr. Kwok. If you have a tiny, assymptomatic lesion - would NOT panick. However, if you have not received some form of treatment for this such as cognitive behavioral therapy - would encourage that.
