Are you 19 or 34?: Either way, do not panic. It's easy for me to say but you have to keep a level head to understand your prognosis and treatment options. Go to a reputable cancer treatment center or group, take a friend for support and to have an extra set of ears, ask all questions you can, do not rush to decisions, think and pray about your choices, and get a second opinion if you need to. Best 2u & god bless.
