yeah stay with the fam
or just tell one good friend that u know will luv u no matter wat and see wat they say aout telling other friends

Tell your friends if you're comfortable but I would definitely want my family around. My brother is going through something similar and my parents and I caught a flight to be with him through everything. I know he is grateful and comforted, now that we are together. Cancer is terrible and you really shouldn't have to face it alone.

let your family be there for you,also, go onto some chat rooms and support groups online and talk to them,they know what you are going thru and can support you and guide you thru this hard time, my cousin has one for people with mini strokes,and it helps people a lot to talk to others in the same situation. Good luck and GOD bless you.

first, i would like to say, im sorry to for what's going on w/ u,
but there is no better support then your family!

keep faith and be strong for your self and family
good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(My wife has Stage IV Melanoma). You need the support of family and friends. Don't try to make it through by yourself. The "alone" way is extremely stressful on your mind, body, & soul. The awkwardness will subside after a while. Follow you doc's instructions. Don't try to self-medicate. Do get second opinions if you feel uneasy with first opinions. DO not shun alternative treatments, e.g., acupuncture. Of your family (my wife has only me and her daughter), confide in the one parent with whom you feel the most comfortable, then move to the next. Same with your friends. Read, read, read about your condition. Learn how to kick its a** and don't be intimidated by it. At 25, you're young enough to pull through with flying colors. It won't be easy...but try to remember you've got cancer...cancer does NOT have you! Good luck. I'll say a prayer for you.

seek a community counseling center, or a help group. lots of churches offer help also.

i wish you well, god bless.

Please please please tell your family and involve them. They can give you strength that you need more than anything at this time. My brother battled cancer and it was a time of great closeness for our family and a real relationship building experience for us all. He drew on our strength and felt our love constantly.

I feel for you my friend. Pray and go to God. He can help, he can ease your pain. Without God, life is so hard. God can help. An encouraging website is joycemeyer.org. She went through cancer and has come through it....Don't be afraid to tell your family and friends....they would want to know because I'm sure they care for you very much.

Having had cancer myself, ( and recovered ) I know what you mean. My friends didn't know how to deal with it and I could feel the vibes.
What I did was to find out all about the treatment, the side effects, worked on building up my health to get me through, and this gave me a purpose.
I imagined myself recovering day by day and this showed, and eventually the topic didn't even come up. I found no need to mention it.
I think you should tell your family, letting them know in a positive way you are handling it.
There's lots you can do for your recovery, visit http://www.friendswithcancer.com.au
Best wishes for your return to health.

I am very sorry to hear... but the best thing is to
tell everyone so that they are aware. The worst thing
to do is not tell anyone because, god forbidd if anything happens think about how they would feel. I hope the best to you and I hope you get well. No matter how hard it is keep a positive attitude because, at the end of the day you will know that you changed someone's life. My aunt had breast cancer and you would never know because of her positive energy. Just by that she changed my life and Im not just saying that to make you feel better... I mean it =)
Good Luck Hope this helps

oneof the best cancers to get for a cure.My sister had it too and she had been bleeding for ages she was up to the point of removing her uterus but they didn't this was 28 yrs ago she ended up having two children had to get tested for first few years every 3-6 mths but after that complete cure.It has to be very advanced for it to kill you.You have to keep getting checked since you probably have the papaloma virus and your partner might get it but it isn't bad for the guy,he needs to know though and you don't need to tell anyone else.you'll be alright cheers.

Your family and friends will certainly want to help and support you, but you might need to talk to people that are going through what you are going through. Talk to your doctor about a support group; they can help answer your questions, give you confidence, a shoulder to cry on and you may be able to help someone else going through this too. They can be a huge, huge, help.

Tell your family and your friends. I know you don't want to stress them but this is serious and you need all the support you can get. That's what family and good friends are for...to lend support, be a shoulder to cry on and to encourage you to get through the bad times. Do not try and go through this alone. I hope and pray that things work out for you.

If you need to talk anytime you can add me to your messenger list or aim if you have it, I don't mind! I'm really sorry for what's happening to you, I do know some meditation techniques that can potentially heal you, however I'm not a professional or anything!!!

i am very sorry to hear what you are going through....at this difficult time, you should definately tell those close to you....especially your family. i hate to say it, but the process will only get harder, and you really need support...if you can have you family and friends as your rocks from the very start, the process will hopefully go smoother.

id much rather deal wit the ackwardness if i was ur friend then not being able to b there to support u wen u need it the most jus let them be there for u and surround urself wit positve friends and family who luv u unconditionally and if ur religious get closer to God becuz there is no sickness or diagnosises to great or hard for Him i wish u the best of luck and ur in my prayers

Dr.Gagan Saini
Now that isnt ur fault is it?
You must involve your family,
and start treatment soon, dont delay or dilly-dally please.
disease doesnt wait
forget awkwardness, first deal with the killer in front of u

stick with your family

I am sorry to hear this, But my sister at your age went through the same thing and now she is just turned 40. With help and support from family and friends she got through the operation to scrap her cevical cancer out. I stood by her through the whole thing now like I said she is 40 and has 3 beautiful girls and is cancer free for over 20 years and technology is better today then 20 years age. Be strong it will be ok.
