Cancer Diagnosis? Do This Next!
September 1, 2019
A cancer diagnosis can be quite scary and overwhelming.
Was your diagnosis based on a screening test or your symptoms?
If it was based on a screening test, such as a mammogram or a colonoscopy, and you have no symptoms, then please read my review of Should I Be Tested for Cancer? Maybe Not and Here's Why by H. Gilbert Welch, MD, MPH, a professor in the Departments of Medicine and Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School. It will put your mind at ease!
If the diagnosis is based on your symptoms, whenever possible ask for a retest and a second opinion.
So first make sure it is actually cancer, then begin with these simple steps:
Join an online group of patients with the same type of cancer. Search Google groups, Yahoo groups, Facebook, etc. to find one and get feedback from other patients on tests, procedures, treatment options, and so on. The information they provide is invaluable.
Visit cancerdecisions.com and get the Moss Reports for cancer. Moss Reports provide you with a very readable, up-to-date, explanation of your cancer diagnosis and the most effective treatment options available.
