    Thanks she is in her 80s, my Nan was unware she had a heart attack until she went to the hospital to have some bloods taken for her yearly routine checkups, thankfully the damage to her heart was minor from what she tells us. she did not take the 2nd option of triple bypass, I think she asked her daughter for an opinion as well, as one her daughters is a nurse, before talking to the doctors

    My Grandad (even though he is not blood relative is also in his 80s , he had two heart attacks in the last 20 years and still fighting on, he recently found out he has cancer, but it one of the slow growing ones, still stage 1, )

    I don't have a cough, or smoke.

    If you injured your shoulder it's that that is causing the pain. Not lung cancer.

    Are you getting any help with you HA?

    I hope you pursue professional help Unsure. Your history here is quite extensive and you've been suffering for a long time. I know you have a diagnosed physical issue but its time to take a stand against the dragon and start to enjoy your life.

    That’s a pretty big jump to make when you have no other symptoms except for a strained muscle. It sounds like you may be very susceptible to what you read, so I think a good first step for you would be to avoid Google for health diagnoses altogether.

    Re: lung cancer worries

    I know sometimes my fingers and hands hurt as well (at the same time) but I spend a long time on the computer

    I always think the worse

    Maybe I need the website blockers on some sites, and have the cat link instead.


    It is every pain/ache I get, I automatically think it is cancer. the pains come and go.
