It’s very natural to be anxious about any medical condition, and absolutely the case when it comes to cancer. I’m with you.
i delayed my diagnosis a while longer than I should have and that delay meant more surgery than might otherwise have been the case. If it is cancer, the quicker he check the better
Denying yourself the check-up won’t make it not cancer. It won’t make it go away.
Howver if you do get it checked and it’s not cancer the sense of relief will be huge and so liberating.
Good luck, it’s healthy to be anxious It’s not healthy to ignore unusual signals from your body.
Does it look like it could be cancer to you?
