Do i have cancer or something else?

I suffer from mainly low body temperature, joint aches and pains which started two weeks ago (sore kneeds, elbows, wrists), cold intolerance, dry mouth, frequent urination, insomnia and depression. The joint pains worry me as I have been googling a lot and some health websites say it could be cancer. However, I don't run a temperature, have had no body weight loss, no vomiting and no night sweats.

I am worried about the joint pains what could be causing them. Should i get some tests done or find myself a good psychologist?

Meena78,

Although cancer can present in many different ways, your symptoms are not necessarily suspicious for it.  

There are other disorders that would be higher on the list of possibilities -- you should follow up with your primary care physician for a comprehensive evaluation (complete history and physical examination) in order to determine the cause of your symptoms.

Good luck
