of a tumor or aneurysm. You feel that any one of the symptoms
you experience are life threatening. You feel an intense fear
when you think of dying, or you may think of it more often than
normal, or can’t
get it out of your mind.

on their own. You may have a 'sense' that you may die soon or
that you have an ongoing fear of death and its implications.
