    Hello @Ibelive2020, sorry to hear about your test results and how upset you are. That's understandable but I think your GP should have explained things to you a bit better.
    My first reaction is that if it was extremely urgent, your GP would have sent you to hospital, so maybe that can ease your fears a little. 

    Second, do you have anyone that you can discuss your fears with? If not, then maybe you can ring the surgery back and discuss this with the nurse. If you mention how very upset you are, I'm sure they can get someone to speak to you.

    Third, I'm glad that you can share your worries with us. There are some lovely, kind people on this Forum who will sympathise with your plight. 
    Please keep going, you are not alone.

    Also, is there anyone who can go with you to the surgery on Monday?

    Take care.

    Easy said but try not to worry think positive that the results could lead to you getting the right treatment you need and then you can feel better

    Hi @Ibelive2020, the only thing I can say is that worrying about a problem doesn't actually solve it and it doesn't help you to cope better. If you can't stop worrying, then it's best to distract your mind for a while. Are you able to watch a nice film or do anything else to calm your mind?
    Please keep in touch.
