Description:
In animated cartoons, an analogy is made between a man with a badly functioning car and a man with physical symptoms which could indicate the presence of a neoplasm. The various stages of denial are illustrated. Unprofessional advice is heard, and quick fix remedies are tried. The car owner finally goes to a good garage and pays heavily to have his car repaired, a bill which would have been small if he had taken his car in at the first sign of trouble. The man decides not to make the same mistake with his body that he made with his car. He goes to see his doctor because he has had indigestion, one of the possible symptoms of cancer. Some myths about cancer are debunked. Cancer therapies are outlined. The growth of cancer cells within the body is illustrated. The seven danger signals of cancer are given. Yearly physical check-ups are advised.
