Speaking up for yourself
It is so important to speak up for yourself! Having an oncologist you can talk to can make all the difference in the world, in life and death. It's important to be aware of as much information pertaining to your form of cancer, and your own body, as you can. Because you are fighting for your life. Your oncologist has hundreds of patients, also fighting for their lives, and he can not be expected to remember every detail about each one. So if you feel like he overlooking a test that you should be having it's vitally important that you speak up, ask him when you last had that test. He will look at his records and often times discover that suddenly it is time for that test. You are your own best advocate!
