It’s not really kosher to talk about instincts when dealing with the medical realities of cancer, but if you’re told not to worry and your instinct is telling you something is still wrong, get a second opinion from a doctor who is willing to test to rule out anything scary or nasty. One of two things will happen - you will pay for peace of mind or be detected early and given the best chance.
It’s not the funnest thing to do, in fact it can be quite nerve wracking, however it beats the alternative. Connie’s one big regret in life is not being more proactive during this process. She’s paying the ultimate price and is desperate to prevent you going down the same road.
It’s already been said and it can’t be said enough, early detection and treatment is the only real cure. Please self-check using the instructions provided in the link below and CONSULT YOUR GP immediately if you recognise any irregularities.
