I have a cancer phobia.
Really, to some degree, everyone does. I mean, who wants cancer? No one. And who’s afraid of getting cancer because a hefty percentage of the people they know/knew have/had it? Everyone.
But I think dwell on it a little more than the average 31 year old. It might be because it took two of my grandparents, my father, my mother-in-law and countless others I’ve known. It might be because I’m prone to a little health anxiety. It’s probably both and more.
