Hello and welcome to the forum!
I am sorry that you are struggling with these fears.:( I know how that feels, and it is very challenging. It is amazing, how we can cognitively know our fears are not rational...yet still struggle with them!
Have you sought therapy for your anxiety? If so, did you work through CBT or for your health anxiety specifically?
If not, I can personally recommend this form of treatment, and encourage you to look into it.:)
We have some great self-help available here in the meantime!
Here is the link to our Resources. Inside, you will find great coping skills to help you keep your overall anxiety as low as possible.
In addition, I have pulled these sites for you specifically for health anxiety struggles. Whenever you are tempted to sympotm search on the computer...
...pull these sites up instead...and put your time and energy into something helpful and constructive!! They are really effective if you commit to them.
