What were your symptoms?

Hi everyone,

I have gotten myself all paranoid about cancer since a loved one's recent diagnosis of a rare stage 4 cancer, with very very few and long overlooked symptoms. 

So this got me worrying about every little ache and lump -- things I thought were normal, or blamed on something else. Never thought cancer. 

So I'm not going to list all these "symptoms", but I'll tell you I'm a 24 yr old who had the 1st of the lumps and aches begin to show up in my teenage years, with the past year or so being achy-er and lumpier than before. (But still not severe enough to think much of)

I don't want to list them all since you'd just tell me to see a doctor. I live in the US and have many reasons to put off seeing a doctor if I'm probably just overreacting/ being paranoid. I of course am beginning to watch the lumps more closely for growth and will go to the doctor if anything changes.

So, Dr Google says I have Hodgkin's or Leukemia or maybe even Tonsil Cancer. But Dr Google says everything is cancer so I'd like to hear some real people's symptoms before I get myself too worried. Especially since my "symptoms" never worried me until this month!
