    It's a good thing that you are getting thinner.

    Why is that? Doesn't it mean that I am sick?

    Being thin does not equal sickness.

    No doctor knows why I am even alive because of all the things that have happened to me, and yet here I am over 70 years old. And nothing is wrong with you but you make yourself miserable by worrying.

    If you are going to get bad news it will happen soon enough on its own.
    Unless that happens enjoy your life for heaven sake while you still have it.

    You are harming your health by stressing out from unfounded fear.
    Regularly get yourself in for a health checkup.

    Believe the results and enjoy your good fortune.

    Can you go get a physical? Thinness has nothing to do with cancer...but if you are afraid something is wrong with you- go get checked out. People do lose bone and muscle mass as they age- which can cause you to drop weight- but if you are still active and doing what you always did- you are probably fine!

    Get a checkup and put your mind at ease.
