I have got a swollen gum (it bleeds sometimes) for a month and it didn't go back to normal although I went to dentist. Dentist said it is not to be worried about. I have got bleeding problem in other area. I haven't got red patches on skin and I have no fever, tireness at all. But I am very worried that it is Lukemia. Is it just my anxiety? Please help me.

Hi Mya and welcome!

We are glad you've joined us though sorry to hear of your current challenges with anxiety/worries.

I am guessing from the wording of your post that this is not your first experience with a health concern.

Since your dentist has not expressed any reason to believe there is cause for concern...

...and assuming that you have had a recent clean bill of health through a check up...and since you have no other symptoms...

...you can safely assume that focusing on anxiety management should be your priority.

Please see our Resources at the top of the main forum page here for great material to work with. We have links specifically for help with health anxiety. Practicing the suggested exercises daily will make a big difference in how you feel.

Post with us anytime. We understand, care and support is key!
