    Do you think my sister is lying about having stage 1 ovarian cancer?

    My sister during her pregnancy told the whole family she has ovarian cancer when she was 8 months pregnant. Apparently she was diagnosed during pregnancy. Though, she is the type of girl who would lie to make her cheating boyfriend stay. They have a very toxic relationship, she has in the past told me to lie to him so he can come back. But anywho, she said they will decide treatmeant after she gives birth. When that time came, she told us it was stage 1 and that they’re just having her take some pills???? And now all of a sudden she doesn’t have cancer anymore? Does it make any sense to anyone?? I never heard of someone taking pills and cancer just gone?? Lately i been realizing that my sister is very weird for the most part and if she’s lying about something like this to our family i don’t think i can forgive her. Someone please enlighten me!

    Hello Dre
    The cancer world is very different from the one portrayed in movies. Yes there are chemo pills. Yes they can have excellent results. Stage one ovarian cancer is very curative.
    I cannot speak to your sister or her character. In my opinion you have blessed to be so naive about cancer. However may I suggest maybe it is time you develop a deeper understanding of your sister and cancer. It appears, sadly, you too have now been affected by cancer even if it is indirectly.
