worried mum has cancer

Think positive thoughts sweetie, it might be nothing serious or it might just be an infection of some kind.

Don't think the worst at this early stage, I know that'll be hard but it really might be something other than cancer.

thank you so much everyone x


My husband has been coughing for years....it's down to rhinitis and it is a concern because it's affected the bronchial tubes in his chest.

He eventually went to a doctor about it....and so should your mum if she's been coughing for ages. It could be anything....and may not even be vaguely serious....but if she gets checked out she might stop coughing and perhaps it will help you to stop worrying Judazz?

Have a word with her and offer to go with her perhaps.
