As humans, we have a habit of ignoring symptoms of disease. Research shows that most of us are petrified of being diagnosed with a terminal illness which is why we ignore the symptoms altogether. This sad reality can make our life span shorter. The sooner we get our illness diagnosed, the sooner we can be fully treated. This is especially true for all forms of Cancer.

There is honestly nothing wrong with being proactive and visiting your closest diagnostic center for a quick check up at the first signs of an abnormality. The most aggressive form of Cancer GBM 4 (Glioblastoma Multiforme) has no cure and is often called 'the death penalty'. It is the fourth and final stage of cancer when there is almost no point of treatment (Chemotherapy and Radiation). However, if a person doesn't ignore its symptoms like headaches and drowsiness and goes for a diagnosis, Cancer would be diagnosed in Stage 1 or 2. At that time the person has a much brighter chance of recovery and an extensive life span.

Our belief in God should strengthen the fact that we will die when we have reached our preordained time. Therefore, we shouldn't be afraid of symptoms and dash for a checkup on the first sign of discoloration, swelling, abnormality or pain. It is most likely that the cause would be nothing serious. But in case it is, you would have a higher chance of survival. Either way, you have nothing to lose. Heading straight for a checkup is the best thing you can do for yourself and your family.
