* Dag in ''Literature/TheSharingKnife'' doesn't worry much about his own health (fortunately, given his status as DesignatedVictim), but he gets a little too solicitous in the first book after Fawn's malice injuries and [[spoiler:miscarriage]], and he gets ''really'' nervous in the fourth book when she gets [[spoiler:[[PanickyExpectantFather pregnant]].]]
-->'''Arkady:''' Almost all apprentices go through a phase where they're convinced they're coming down with every new disease they've just learned about. I thought you were going to be the notable exception. I suppose I didn't think it through quite far enough.

* Implied with Saku Hotakainen in the ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'' prologue. His introduction blurb describes him as "usually 'dying' from something" and he is true to that desciption when he seems to think his current bout of seasickness is going to kill him. He appears in the prologue segment confirming the Rash to be deadly and not just the fast-spreading but non-lethal sickness that it was presented as in the previous segments. This reveal is made via a newscast watched (alone) by Saku's young nephew, whose first reflex is to tell Saku about it. Saku's reponse to the information is hoping he actually has the Rash. If he had it, he would have gotten skin problems long before the vomiting started.

Compare TerrifiedOfGerms, PlayingSick, MunchausenSyndrome (both when characters know they aren't actually sick), YouDontWantToCatchThis (which is faking an illness for other reasons), MistakenForDying, JewishComplaining (which often involves something that might get them sick).

* In ''Literature/ThreeMenInABoat'', the narrator reads a medical textbook and concludes that he has every known disease except housemaid's knee. He rushes to his doctor, who gives him a prescription for a good meal, a long walk, a good night's sleep, and to stop reading medical textbooks.

* One of the --many-- flaws of George in ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': he is so hipochondriac that he can't even read about symptoms or watching documentaries about a disease without thinking he has it.
