Handling A Cancer Diagnosis
One of the most shocking and difficult to process things you can hear from your doctor is that you can have cancer. One of the reasons this is so hard to hear is that many people still believe that having cancer automatically means having a death sentence. However, that’s no longer the truth. In fact, if caught early, cancer can be completely eliminated and you can live a long, happy life.
Many people are at first in shock. They never thought they would have cancer. They may ask the doctor several times if it’s a confirmed diagnosis. Then they may quickly move into denial. That phase doesn’t usually last very long for most people—for some, it may last only as long as it takes to get a second opinion. This can be followed by anger and, finally, either acceptance and a strong dedication to beating the disease or acceptance and depression.
If you’ve made the decision to do everything you can to find the disease (and you should—there’s no reason to become depressed and give up), one of the first things you’ll want to discuss with your doctor is how to change your lifestyle to help your body fight off the cancer. These can include things like stopping smoking, changing up your diet, and exercising more.
