Family history of prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer. Chances of developing cancer?

Hi, I m worried about my risk of getting cancer and keep asking my doctors do to general physicals for me but they won t unless i have a specific problem. I was wondering how I could get them to do an mri scan or something of that type for me as I get very nervous thinking about the risk of me getting cancer. Both my grandfathers died of prostate cancer , my grandmother on my father s side died of ovarian cancer , my grandmother on my mothers side died of lung cancer , my father currently has prostate cancer and my aunt recently developed skin cancer. Kind of explains why I m so wary about my chances of getting it. My doctors know this information but they always just say don t worry about it which doesnt sound very assuring.

Welcome to HCM,
Your doctors are right as you do not have any problem from any systems of your body, for what they go for investigations ?
It seems you have got Anxiety Neurosis.
Develop self confidence and mind power that I do not have any problem.
Remove false fear from your mind and live joyfully.
Ok and bye.
