Stress in cancer
Hi doc, I was diagnosed with melanoma cancer two years ago. The cancer is now in remission for a year. I would like to know if a lot of stress can bring on the cancer again.

Melanoma, stress won’t cause cancer, but it might make treating it more difficult. I don’t think that it is a problem inn your case as you have been in remission for the last 2 years. Good luck.
