You are doing the right thing. And feeling anxious is normal. But this is the right course of action. Like a typical guy, I wrote my symptoms off as hemorrhoids, which my dad has always dealt with. And of course, any stomach ache, I always attributed to eating something that didn't sit well. After all, I worked out. Lived a relatively healthy lifestyle, etc.
So, I'll be praying this is nothing for you. But I'm celebrating the fact you're being proactive.
