I don’t want to rub it in but sometimes it also goes the other way. about 15 years ago my uncle fell down some stairs messing around and broke his leg. When they went to operate they found early signs of cancer and managed to nip that in the bud for it to never return. My mom credits my aunt (her SIL) as a sort of guardian angel as they likely wouldn’t have caught it until much, much later.
I completely tore a shoulder tendon at the gym. A week before the repair surgery I got a call in the middle of a meeting on a business trip. They couldn’t do the surgery because I was anemic. Now, what could make a healthy middle-aged man anemic? Dr. Google said “colon cancer”.
