Terminally? Always give it a shot (at living), but I'd also like to know my chances so that I can get my things arranged. Would feel sorry for the lady-friend though. That would be the biggest regret I have.

I'd like to know- I'd hate to be caught by surprise by Death and I'd want to make sure I'd live my last days/weeks/months/years to the fullest.  Smile That's only if it's terminal of course- I wouldn't give up if it had a reasonable chance of survival (without becoming a vegetable that is- then I'd rather throw myself off a cliff or something).

Even though this is just a "what if " question (I assume/hope...  Sad)... I don't think it's even legal for a doctor NOT to inform you unless you're under-age and your parents/legal guardian don't want them to... am I correct?

May I suggest that you should live EVERY day/week/month/year to the fullest as death often has a habit of sneaking up and catching people by surprise.  Smile

Wise words. I'd like to treat every day as if it was my last- and mostly, I do. But I do lack the fundings to do the more extreme stuff (like RTW trip, etc). If it turned out I had a terminal illness, I think I'd just sell everything I could and fund it that way- that way, I wouldn't bring my family into debt, and I'd get to die happy. Big grin

I would never want to hear that
I am really scared to die and the only way I want to die is in my sleep, as it seems the only painless method

If I was told, then I would like to complete my last wish; Fly First Class

Well I never go to the doctor, so I guess I'd like to die unexpectedly.

I've discussed this with a few friends who've also watched relatives and friends die after long-drawn out attempts to "cure" them from fatal diseases. The consensus has always been, "let me just get it over with quickly", so I'd rather know up front, then have as much fun as possible with whatever time I had left, and die of good living rather than while hooked up to tubes and wires in a hospital bed.

I would want to know, but I wouldn't be this guy:

LONDON (Reuters) - A British man who went on a wild spending spree after doctors said he only had a short time to live wants compensation because the diagnosis was wrong and he is now healthy -- but broke.
