Fear of Cancer!
Hello doctors, I am 27 years old. I am 5".4' and I weigh 73 kg. I don't understand how much my weight should be according to my age, gender and height. What kind of nutrition I should take and additionally how much exercise I should be doing! I am extremely afraid that once I start exercising and I lose weight, that might  mean I have cancer. I am diagnosed with Lichen Planus in my legs (pics attached are Lichen Planus spots). I don't know if this is in my head or is this something that should not be the way to think or live! I keep on googling about Cancer, various forms of it and think to get myself tested about the same. I am extremely confused about the whole thing. I need help, can someone please make me understand how weight loss is related to cancer and how much weight loss is actually unhealthy?! Additionally, should I start doing some exercises or what exactly should I do now?! P.S - Whoever responds, thank you so much for understanding my position.

Hi    For your height approx correct wt would be 60 kg. You are little ovwrweight. See weight loss due to cancer is different. You will have both loss of appetite and loss of weight with cancer even if u dont exercise. The spots shown here are clearly lichen plants spots. So don't worry. Consult a dermatologist
