>>7369802>I guess everything that chills you gives you cancer (cigarettes)
Tobacco is an stimulant. The relaxation comes from ending the cravings. A smoker is as relaxed when smoking as a nonsmoker is normally. T. Exsmoker>I'm a pretty strong hypochondriac, but this all started because I coughed up bloody mucous. I also had some chest pain for a while and some other minor symptoms. Where I live you can call a phone number to get advice from a nurse for free, and I called them three times. The first lady was really concerned, which is what convinced me I'm fucked; but, the other two were less worried. I did the x-ray the other day, and I get to find out the results in two weeks. I look forward to knowing I'm just a hypochondriac.
Where in the fuck do you live that it takes two weeks to analyze an xray. Regardless, there's plenty of conditions that makes you cough blood, specially in low quantities (if only a little mixed with mucus is probably laringitis/bronquitis). You're overestimating how common is lung cancer, specially at your age. Chest pain symptoms are bs most of the time, almost for sure if their mild (just slightly bad posture at night will hurt slightly).
The first nurse was probably worried because she didn't see it, and hearing "I'm coughing up blood" is concerning. Then, confirmation bias, and you are suddenly convinced that it's lung cancer for sure. That was 1/3 nurses.
It is not. It could be, but it's extremely unlikely at your age. I'm making the effort to write this because I know how fucked health anxiety can be.
In any case, for lung cancer to be symptomatic (make you cough up blood) it has to be developed enough to be visible en the xray, so please, once they tell you you're clear, take it and don't start with "maybe they missed it".
