Have Faith: In your doctors. I'm sure they are very good. If they say it is not cancer, which by the way is very rare ijn a teenager, then you do not.

Dr. Nadia Ghattas

No cancer: You realy should have faith & trust in your doctor , unless you have specific signs, symptoms or strong family history of cancer then you should seek 2 ND opinion for peace of mind , also get psychiatric help for your anxiety because this whole idea of cancer could be due to your anxiety. Good luck.
