Teen hypocondriac

I had my tonsils out when i was 10 and ended up loosing alot of blood & staying in the hospital alot..after that i worried constantly that something bad would happen to me i was always scared that i would get some type of illness like cancer. It went away after a while and i didnt worry anymore. Now im 15 and the past month ive been constantly getting myself convinced i have appendicitis im always worrying ill get it & ill convince myself into thinking my side hurts. This mostly happens at night when i try to relax and go to sleep & it prevents me of doing so. Even though i know i am fine i still worry constantly & its driving me crazy & preventing me from living a normal teenage life.
