I thought I was dealing with my cancer real well until two weeks ago. At that time I received word that my brother passed away. He died from lung cancer that had spread to his bones, liver, and brain. What has me in a tailspin is he wasn't dx until two weeks before his death. He only had a pain in his hip. He was also the same age as my mother who also lost her cancer fight. I am 60yrs old,they died at 62. I have an extensive family history of many different cancers. I'm scared this or another cancer will go undetected until its to late. I have been telling myself that I just have to keep on top of my treatments, so anything new will be caught early. It still has me in a funk. How do you know when pains you have had for years need to be checked?
