    I work with a carcinogenic substance every day called Nessler's Reagent. I use it to test tap water for ammonia.

    Im pretty sure I splash droplets of that schit on my skin at least 3 times a week. I could worry about it. I just shrug, say f1ck it, and hope me washing it off was enough.

    Point is, if I work with a cancer causing substance and dont even let it phase me, then you can not worry about getting cancer when you dont even come into contact with substance that cause it.

    You can lower your risk with healthy exercise, sleep, fish oil, and other supplements, as well as normal visits to a physician. Other than that, cancer is genetic. Just keep your body stats healthy and that’s all you really can do on your end. Believe me, this is rational, but don’t let this fear eat you alive. Best wishes.

    Know that Cancer cells are present within everyone to a certain degree, so just part of the normal life experience. If you find the fear is overwhelming you then speak to your doctor, and have every test that is possible carried out at regular diagnostic intervals, so if problems actually do appear they can be dealt with before they become a serious issue. Of course don't smoke, limit alcohol intake, eat healthy foods, limit sun exposure and exercise. Just about everyone in my family, for several generations now, has experienced cancer in one form or another, so I have the regular checks carried out on those that are the most common. I don't fear it but deal with it with it appears and get on with my life in the meantime.

    Stop thinking about it. Keep telling yourself it WON'T happen. Get some therapy for health anxiety.

    Get a colonoscopy. If it is negative, relax. Have your PSA (prostate spefic antigen) tested. If it is below 4.0, relax.

    For some cancers you can do nothing.

    You can get it from anything in the world.

    Just eat and exercise.

    Eh lead a clean life: no smoking, no Sun tanning, no greasy foods, no processed foods, etc. See your MD annually for screenings. Colonoscopy when you reach 50. And a bunch of other things you can research that you can do to minimize your chances for cancer.
