That's the scary part. If only 1% survive.. then it can evade the test too right?

yes. That's exactly how it gets false negative results. It is why you have to wait 2 - 4 weeks for them to grow up the mass.

it's not that simple to develop cancer. If you dont have family history of cancer, you most likely dont have to worry much. The more you think about it, the worse you can feel. So, try to maintain positive thoughts.

If you just completed your antibiotics, then it is not advisable to do a test immediately. You need to wait for a month to make sure you are not getting false negative.
