Deliberate holding back of urine

I am a 23 year old female. I have a strange problem. When I was in 9th grade I had to hold back urine once  physically after which I started doing it frequently for a while and soon it became a habit since there was hardly any time after I get the urge to pee. Although the situation becomes normal if I consciously try to avoid holding back, the problem resurfaces if I hold back for long time deliberately. For the past 9 years I have been doing it. Sometimes I do it deliberately when I am depressed without realizing the consequences. Now although I don't have any problems as yet I am afraid of having done this for the past so many years and I am afraid if it might have caused permanent damage or even cancer. This thought has been eating me for a long time and since I am afraid and embarrassed to discuss it with anyone I am posting it in the forum. Of late I have stopped doing it and I dont have any problems. I am 23 and the past and the consequences it may have is preventing me from being optimistic about the future. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I am really worried. Thank you very much.
