Hi all, I'm really going through a hard time with my mother right now and I guess I am just hoping for a little bit of insight or reassurance.
Within the past month or so my mom has been complaining about a lot of symptoms that I am afraid are indicative of cancer. She suffers from a bit of HA as well and never goes to the doctor. My father passed away 10 years ago suddenly from cancer and I think that has played a big role in both her and my HA. She recently told me that she's been suffering from chronic cough, back pain, arm pain, and sporadic dizziness/blurry vision. She also mentioned that she's had a slight lump in her breast for months, under a weird looking mole that she says she's had for a while. I am simply beside myself. I know she always keeps these things to herself because she doesn't want me to worry but if I don't, I know she won't take matters into her own hands. I am terrified that she has some sort of primary breast/melanoma cancer that has already spread. I'm scared that it is too late..
I know it's hypocritical to be mad at her because I too suffer from intense anxiety about every day things but I just don't know what I am going to do if it's the worst case scenario..
