Anxiety and panic attacks, depression, weight loss, bags under eyes. Cancer?

I m not sure if this would really fall under mental health , but here it goes. I ve been having a lot of issues. I ve been having an on and off battle with anxiety/panic attacks since about February. I recently thought of the worst possible scenario for all of it, and that would be cancer . From the depression to the weight loss , to the constant bags under my eyes. I ve just been worried. I m only 19 years old, and female. Could that even be a possibility? Or is it just stress? I m really looking for some insight here. Let me know, thank you!

Bagginess under eyes in not a marker for cancer. you have written that you are under great stress and in depression. your diet might have got effected due to mental stress. Poor nutrition especially diet poor in proteins is a common cause of this. I feel you should stop thinking of all this and take a healthy diet and go for regular exercise. You are very young and have a long life ahead. Give respect to life God has given you and do your best in life without nonsensical thoughts
