Worst disease: "Worst disease" means nothing without more information.
It is time to see your doctor who will take your medical history, examine you, and then possibly/probably will order labs.
When complete the doctor will discuss things with you.

My response: Why are you asking? Depression can be bad enough, prompting suicide in many. ALS, pancreatic cancers, but other cancers, can be miserable. Stop fixating on horrible issues and refocus on positive experiences. Would highly recommend effective counseling.
