Im getting sick often!

Could it be the weather? the change of seasons? But the past month i have been feeling sick more then normal. Im 18 years old and a little worried. Does Cancer cause people to get sick often?

Re: Im getting sick often!

Well what kind of sickness are you feeling? Cold- like symptoms, headache,etc....

It could be very well be the season change and/or weather. I am unable to tell though because you didn't mention the symptoms you are expierencing.

Re: Im getting sick often!

I get sick alot. I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 15. I did happen to get mono a couple of months before my cancer was diagnosed. I had a leg tumor, very rare, and I don't know if having the cancer caused me to get sick more often. I get sick alot now at the age of 30, but most of it can be atributed to issues from the mono-it acts up from time to time and I get recurrences of it. I don't have cancer anymore, but I do get sick alot. I don't think that your first inclination should be cancer, but most folks here think of the dreaded "c" word whenever their health is ailing. I don't blame them, we hear alot about cancer these days. I will say that any symptom that you have can be attributed to cancer. I like to think that cancer is usually one of the least common causes of alot of symptoms though. Most of us just tend to think the worst. Also, try not to google symptoms too much-cancer pops up with any symptom you type in. Try not to worry too much!

Re: Im getting sick often!

Worrying itself could suppres the immune system so dont worry, BE HAPPY
Aside from the obvious make sure you eat a clean and healthy diet that helps support your body for optimal immunity
One such example might be the inclusion of a wide variety of various veggies and fruits (all kinds of colors)+ 90+ oz's of water (clean and pure) every day,
the inclusion of flaxseed (for essential fatty acids), a good "whole-food"vitamin/mineral supplement, lean cuts of health meat (chicken, beef, turkey) and a good whey protein.

Have you ever thought of going to your mom/dad and telling them? Go to your DR and see what he/she has to say.
