Default ive got cancer I'm REALLY scared

hey.. about the past month I've just gotten progressively worse signs of colon cancer. Mainly last week, it picked up. So I went to get checked out and I've got it. I am SO SCARED about what will happen. I've really just got to have some sympathy, cause' my life has been crazy for the past few days and now I'm just really sad and depressed

Buffs, if you have any family, let them know... they can be the best support group you have. But you also need to find a support group from outside your family so that you get things off of your chest that might really hurt your family member's feelings. Also, ask your doctor about study and test groups that you might be able to get the latest treatments from, because you are going to need all the medical support you can get, too. Cancer runs in my family, I've lost 4 relatives to it, and I know from experience that the more you include your friends and family in your fight, the better your chances will be. If you need to talk, I can Private Message my phone number to you ...If you want me to do that, just send me a message, OK?

Hang in tough, keep a positive attitude and don't let the problem get you down, get IT down instead. Fight like a lion. Never give up, never quit. And most important of all, believe that you are going to win, and beat this disease, and keep right on going. I wish you the best.

Hang in there man. As a person who has spent a good half of my life in a hospital the best thing you need is hope and love support. Without the support of my family and friends I doubt I could have made it. Hope you get well.

Exactly. A positive attitude is the most important thing. I'm sending some mojo your way.

Agreed, early diagnosis can mean a very good chance of successful treatment and a positive long term outlook, but you have to stay positive and fight it mentally as well as through treatment. Your family and friends will be a big part of that as well, so let them help you as well. Everyone's thoughts will be with you.

Hang in there, buffs. Just like everyone else has said, keep a positive attitude and determine to beat this thing head on. You'll be in my prayers. Keep us posted.
