Is half cooked pork harmful?

I just ate some raw/ undercooked pork. My mother made some pork dumplings for me and froze it over night. I boiled it and ate about 4 pieces before I realized that it wasn't fully cooked. I'm worried that I might get some sort of disease or worm. Should I consult my family doctor? Is there anyway to make sure that I have it now so I will know before hand? What should I do?

Undercooked food is not good for health.

especially meat,pork if it not processed and cooked properly possibility of worm manifestation chances are there.
some times food poisoning may occur within 24 hours to 48 hours.

if you didnt feel any discomfort kindly ignore.kindly take a stool test to rule out any eggs or worms presence.

if you experience any abdomen pain,vomiting,some worms in stools kindly visit your physician.
