Being told about the diagnosis of cancer is a challenging passing phase to handle. Naturally, during the process of cancer diagnosis and deciding on treatment, apprehensions fill the mind. Presented below are the steps to cope-up with the situation to undergo the treatment effectively. Naturally, one would be in a hurry to get the treatment immediately. However, it is worth to halt for some time mentally, take a breather and get ready for possible prolonged treatment ahead. This approach helps in undergoing the treatment more efficiently as well as improves the chances of cure. A step towards cure starts at the very moment of diagnosis of cancer.
Strictly speaking, no one can answer this question, including the most experienced oncologist anywhere in the world. However, by default, the answer to yourself should be "YES, IT IS CURABLE". There are two reasons for the "YES" answer. One is, cancer is no longer the disease that it was (when the theme used to be "it's curable if detected early") following recent advances in the treatment of cancer. One should focus on getting on with the therapy and going back to everyday life as early as possible. Second, the more you answer to yourself "YES", even thousands of time, the more you contribute to the cure. It's not about getting rid of it (a thought process that will give tension), but living with it & handling it meticulously at ease (thought process that will relax the body system and makes you stronger in getting rid of cancer cells). The more you relax starting from the time of diagnosis better are the chance of cancer receding, leading to a cure and improved quality of life. This attitude also eases confusion, dilemma and inner fear.
Every word in the above paragraph is powerful, effective and with a long-lasting effect. It's worth reading above paragraph, again and again, before-during-after treatment, to get the full impact on your mind.
