Don't take me wrong, per se. Modern medicine and science are a wonderful thing that has increased the quality of life for everyone. We have come to find that many relatively minor maladies are easily avoided or cured simply by washing our hands, having clean water, the advent of rubbing alcohol, taking sewage away...

With that said, I typically do not go to the GP unless the situation is dire. My life has been saved at least twice by modern medicine. As to the cancer thing...it really gets onto a whole other subject. My views on treating cancer are very much in line with what KIND of cancer it is, and how treatable/survivable it is. Much like many other things, I cannot see leaving a family with a huge debt over an inevitability.
