Cancer Survival Rates

>> Tuesday, April 20, 2010

I was reading in a magazine yesterday how the cancer survival rates are getting better and better.  It talked about not exactly beating the cancer but managing it.  It talked about thyroid cancer, breast cancer and one other that I can't remember now.  I know it wasn't the mesothelioma survival rate. I think it was some type of Hodgkin's (or non-Hodgkins).  That's the one my uncle has had for many years.  They didn't expect him to live as long as he has but he is.  He's "managing" it with diet, etc.

All that reading yesterday gave me nightmares about cancer last night.  I have thyroid disease with multiple nodules and any one of those nodules could now be, or could turn into, a cancer.  A biopsy gets one teeny part of a nodule and it is likely it wouldn't be the cancerous part out of all those millions of cells so I really have no idea.  It's a little black cloud that comes out to play whenever I think about it too long.

Am sorry to hear about your thyroid. I hope it does not turn out to be malignant.
