Cushing’s Awareness Challenge 15

robin-dontsay

A continuation of the last post with another of Robin’s great images.  I’ve also heard many of these comments.

I did have #6, cancer – kidney cancer or renal cell carcinoma – in 2006 and the diagnosis was much faster/easier than Cushing’s.  My cancer diagnosis took about an hour in the emergency room.  Cushing’s took about 5 years or so.  Cancer surgery recovery was faster with fewer long-term consequences.

When I told people I had cancer, everyone understood.  When I told them I had Cushing’s, no one did.

That being said, I don’t recommend getting either cancer or Cushing’s!
