Oncology (General Cancer)/hey


? Hello my mom might have breast cancer how do I ask her ?

That is a very hard question! I do not know your mother. Humans are alike but also different. And those differences shape what kind of persons we are. If your father is alive and they are still together it may be better to ask him instead. If that route is unavailable you may just ask your mother if she is OK. Some people just do not want to discuss their health even with the close family. That should in most cases be respected. Why do you think she has breast cancer? Have you heard something from somebody else? Then maybe you should ask that person what it is all about. If it turns out that there IS something here in this matter you can ask her: "I have heard that you are not quite well and I am far away, how are you?" That is all the advice I think I am able to give you.
