A question from Groundhog: Can you refuse breast cancer treatment?
I’m an author and I’m going to write a book about a woman who discovers herself and blah blah blah. The point is, she has breast cancer but she’s going to refuse treatment. I was wondering if, in America, you can do that? And what would be excepted? Would you be able to do things or would you be bedridden?

Yes you can refuse anything you want primarily because this is America.
Cancer is a progressive disease so the symptoms get worse as the disease gets worse. The biggest problem with refusing breast cancer treatment is the unnecessary problems it causes you and those around you. The cancer will eventually break through the skin causing an ulcerated, oozing, unhealing, painful, bleeding area that enlarges over time and is so foul smelling you can smell it from 10-15 feet away.
