Need to hang a small cabinet in bathroom


I need to hang a small cabinet ovebecause I don't want to accidentally hit any plumbing pipes.

Any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks for any repliesr the toilet in the bathroom. I have only found one stud. Even though I have measured out at 16" and 24", I have not found a second stud.

I am afraid to install a wall anchor .

Make a small slot in the drywall carefully with a utility knife to see what your are dealing with. The cabinet will cover it later. If you find you only have one stud, use toggle bolts on the other side of the cabinet to support to the drywall.
