A phobia is an irrational and excessive fear of an object or situation. In most cases, phobias involve a sense of endangerment or a fear of harm. Symptoms can occur through exposure to the fear object or situation, or sometimes simply thinking about the feared object can lead to a response. These symptoms can escalate into a full-scale anxiety attack. As a consequence of these symptoms, some individuals begin to isolate themselves, leading to severe difficulties in daily life. In other cases, the individual may seek medical care due to a constant concern with imagined illnesses or imminent death. Phobias are actually quite common, affecting more than 10% of the U.S. population.
