I have been cancer-free for 6 1/2 years now. Overcoming all these hardships has been the hardest thing I have ever had to do. It has made me a better person all around. It has strengthened my faith in God and my fellow man. My major recommendation is this: only you know your own body. When something doesn't seem right, pursue it until you are satisfied. It could be the difference between life and death. Early detection is key!
