Hi Vicky and welcome!

Please please talk to your doctor about this, he can put things in perspective for you. You can even seek a therapist help on this if you feel you need to talk it out with someone to make you see things clearly.
You are welcomed to share your concerns with our Cancer Community for support. But please follow up with your doc as well. He has your health history and would know best.
Good Luck and Good health, Chrissy WebMD Community Staff
