To be honest I never ever worry about any type of cancer at all. I've worried about pretty much everything else but cancer just never seems to bother me that much. It's weird how some things trigger people and some just don't.

Yup I am the same. Cancer just doesn't seem to worry me in the slightest. Even though I have to get eyes tests every 6 months because I am at high risk for eye cancer for some reason it doesn't worry me in the slightest. I just assume I won't get it. However heart fears? Yup terrified of them. 26 and I'm terrified there is something wrong with my heart.


Also good thread idea! Bit of irony always needed.

This is a really great question! :)
As for my health anxiety, I DON'T worry about diseases that are not found in the USA.

Cancer isn't a huge fear for me. It's issues like a heart attack.. Aneurysm or anything that will kill me instantly. With cancer it has to be diagnosed and you have to go through treatment and you have time to get used to it. It's instant death that freaks me out.

I never worry about breast cancer, colon cancer or MS (they all are well funded and often treatable).

My first HA crisis was an intense fear of Heart issues.

Then it became an absolute terror of any type of cancer.  I even fear breast cancer, and I'm a man.

Funny thing, now Heart issues don't scare me at all. If one goes that way it's quick. But with cancer it's a painful, prolonged, expensive, way to go, with much suffering, not only by oneself, but by our loved ones as well.

I'm not that afraid of cancer anymore... it's more the stuff like ALS, because you can't even treat it. At least with Cancer I've got a fighting chance.
Me too. Degenerative neuro conditions, particularly ALS, are what I worry most about, though I do have the occasional brain tumor fear flare-up.
