← Back to: List of phobias
Carcinophobia is the fear of cancer. The fear depends on what type of cancer is involved. when a carcinophobe is diagnosed with cancer, it would make the diagnosis more frightening, and it is scary enough to do you a lot more harm or more than the disease itself. Everyone is carcinophobic, and more afraid of the disease than the medical evidence says that we might need to be, and that could be bad for our health, and in a recent report to the US National Institutes of Health, the most common type of cancer is skin cancer, and prostate cancer is the 2nd most common.
