A friend who is a former cancer hospice worker has taught me a lot about regret.
It was shocking to hear how many of my hospice patients got to the end of their lives wishing they had lived differently. Many had unresolved relationship issues, unfulfilled dreams, and long-held resentments. But by far the most common regret is that they didn't discover their cancer earlier enough, that they didn't have a chance to have a fight where the odds were stacked in their favor.
I grew up in Australia, in a culture where people, particularly men, were encouraged to grit their teeth when they felt sick. To man up. Where a visit to the doctor was seem as a sign of personal weakness. My uncle who died of colon cancer, revealed to us that he had felt pain for several years leading up to the time when the cancer was ultimately diagnosed. My auntie, who died of brain cancer, insisted that she was merely getting old when she started having trouble doing crossword puzzles. Why is it that if a friend told us these things we would insist that they go to the doctor, but we don't follow our own advice.
Prenuvo is helpful if you have a niggling feeling that something might be wrong - perhaps you feel persistent pain or have a sense that you might be unwell. (After seeing thousands of patients we have come to believe that a small number of people can somehow sense a problem even in the absence of symptoms). A quick scan will bring peace of mind or, should we find something, an earlier diagnosis that could save your life.
But because we know that we are our own worst enemy when it comes to our health, Prenuvo is also appropriate if you feel perfectly fine. Think of it as a physical for the inside of your body - a quick 100-point check-up to make sure that there is nothing wrong under the hood. You do it for your teeth, you do it for your skin, so who not do it for the other dozen organs that you cannot easily see.
Take if from my friend, life is too short to live with regrets!
The scan helped save my mother’s life. Discovered an asymptomatic brain aneurysm that was consequently treated preventatively. This technology is a game changer in preventative health.
I had something persistently bothering me in my lower abdomen that my doctor couldn't help with. During my scan they found something in my colon that would have killed me if untreated. A little preventative scan can go a long way!
The first scan was a little scary, like visiting the dentist after forgetting for several years, but after I got a clean bill of health I know I'll be doing it every year so I never wake up one day with advanced disease.
It wasn't expensive at all compared to a normal MRI - and they scan almost your entire body. And now I have peace of mind about my health at a time when every day I spend with my family is very precious to me.
