I just got over my scare with colon cancer. Now I think I have a spinal tumor.

2. Even when your doctor tells you that you're fine, you're still in denial.

Are you sure? Because WebMD told me that I would be dead within the next month. Now when are we scheduling that CT scan?

3. Constantly monitoring any changes in your body.

Heartbeat? Fine. Skin color? Pale but not yellow, so that's okay. Those suspicious looking moles on my back? Same size, so it must not be skin cancer. Stool? Not sure if I want to look...

4. After you make it through another month: "Well I'm not dead...yet..."

5. Sanitizing everything.

Maybe make a doctor's appointment, just in case.

8. Googling even the slightest symptoms.
