I too tend to imagine worst case scenario in most things. But even if you generally don't, cancer has the power to take you there. I reckon there is no more loaded word than cancer but I did not feel this until I was diagnosed. It just has so many connotations and fears attached to it even though some may never apply in every situation. Personally becoming bald really freaked me out as I look terrible in hats etc. As it turns out chemo was never going to be an option as it isn't effective with my kind of cancer anyway. So I got surgery which scares the hell out of me on the day but then you get knocked out and I do like Midazalam.
Good luck everyone with whatever occurs and try not to scare the pants off yourself!
