Narrator: I'm in pain and afraid my cancer is coming back….
Julie Silver, MD: There are many, many reasons why people have pain. Most of which have nothing to do with cancer. And anyone who's been through cancer,the minute they feel pain it goes through this filter in their brain that says, Oh my gosh, my cancer's back.And the truth is that it's probably not back. It's probably that you have a tendonitis or you have a headache, or something totally different that is easily treated and so on.So if you have a really persistent pain, that has been there more than two weeks, that's unrelenting and something that's causing you to take notice,then you should definitely be going to your doctor for that and getting a workup and looking at that.
