Worried about cancer
Quite a while back I had a big talk with my mom as I had to improve my lifestyle etc and didn't know why she had brought this up. She had then went on about how several cancers have killed at least one of every generation in my family as far back as we have managed to go. Cancers like, Lung Cancer, Skin Cancer, Non-Hodgkins-Lymphoma, Leukiemia, Breast Cancerm and another of which i cant remember. However, i know Brain Cancer isn't, and it seems that just above my ear it gets extremely sore and the pain can last up to 2 / 3 weeks even nurofen and things like that doesn't make the pain go away and i panice thinking i might have a tumour. I might just be over reacting but I really dont like the idea of getting cancer. Cause ever single one of my family that has had cancer on my moms side has died. Does anyone know any signs that will show i might have any of them? There is only my sister and I in this generation and I'm extremely scared because I wonder most of the time if its me that will get it.
