Such a simple thing. Maybe three years is too long and people forget.

I hope I'm never in a position to know for sure, but I feel like I would take cancer seriously enough to be vigilant about follow-up care even after I've "beaten" it.

I wonder if it's a fear of finding out something bad? I've heard of people who don't go to the doctor when they have a health concern just because they're afraid of getting upsetting news. Granted, I think knowing is a much better alternative, but I could possibly see that as a reason people don't go back.

I've long said that the crisis in healthcare is as much about the poor quality of it as the unavailability of it to some. This article is proof of that.
