Let this be a lesson. Schedule physical checkups with your doctor! The sooner you catch things like this, the better your chances of beating them! Believe me, I know. I lost my mother to colon cancer in 1997. Even after sensing problems, she put off a doctor’s visit for a YEAR. Don’t let your fear of needles get in the way of a long, healthy life!
