Understanding a Cancer Diagnosis
Hearing that horrible word—“cancer”—can make a person shut down. It’s a lot to take in, even when the doctor also says that it was caught early and that it’s nonmalignant. Many people still equate the word cancer with a death sentence, even though that’s certainly no longer true. In fact, today medical professionals have learned how to handle many different types of cancer. Unfortunately, the cures are often just as bad as the cancer itself. Chemotherapy is nothing to go into lightly. It can leave a person weak, tired, and depressed. Fortunately, there are some natural things you can do to help lessen the effects of the cancer and get you on the road to recovery much more quickly.
However, before you can even get to that, you have to understand what your doctor is telling you. One thing you may want to do is to have someone with you when the doctor makes the diagnosis if you even suspect it could be something major. This person—your spouse, child, parent, or other loved one—will, of course, probably be overwhelmed too. However, if you’ve picked someone who is good in a crisis or who isn’t prone to getting overly emotional, they should be able to listen more closely to the doctor and get all of the information. You may need them later to tell you more about what the doctor said in case you’re overwhelmed yourself.
You and your loved one can also treat your case as a worst-case scenario. If there’s time before the diagnosis, sit down and create a list of questions you want answered in the event that it is cancer. Make sure all of the answers to these questions are written down. This way, you’ll be able to look back later and see what the doctor said. Even if you’re calm and don’t get overly emotional at the time, you may not remember every detail. Write everything down so you can understand your diagnosis and be ready to fight the cancer.
