I've had my moments where I've thought the same thing too.

It IS scary sometimes what happens to us, it's not normal after all! For me, I get the most scared the longer the new/terrible symptoms last. I've even said the exact same thing to myself... that if it was cancer I'd be dead by now surely! This in a way to attempt to reassure myself it isn't cancer that is being missed of course.

For you, the most likely culprit is costochondritis (inflammation of rib cage essentially). Other less likely possibilites are pleuritis (more likely if it's pain upon breathing in though) and pericarditis. I hope it eases for you soon...
