one kind of marijuana that can be used as a medicine. I am not sure if this thing works, does anybody tried it before? I need some help here...
Hopefully your symptoms are not caused by potential cancer, but, rather, anxiety and what they call "psycho-somatic" causes, where you convince yourself that it's going to happen and your body follows suit. Kind of like the placebo effect, but in reverse. Seeing a doctor and dealing with what you might have, or finding out that it's probably caused by you worrying about it is the way to go, as others have said.
A couple things to consider -
(A) Talking about the "heredity" of cancer - she can't pass cancer down to you. You'd be inheriting through genetics a predisposition, vulnerability or weakness against cancer. Kind of like if there's a lot of obesity in the family gene pool, one probably inherits a predisposition, and can live an active, healthy lifestyle and not ever get there.
(B) If your headaches WERE caused by cancer, using MJ as medicine and not seeking medical help would be a bad way to go. If I have a splitting headache caused by a brain tumor, and I take five aspirin and that helps, it's helping with the pain/symptom, and not the cause. Using MJ as "medicine" helps to alleviate symptoms and side effects, but would not be helping with the underlying cause. Indeed, you'd even run something of a risk of avoiding needed treatment if you just mask the symptoms.
Not saying not to medicate for the headaches, but if you're worried about potential cancer, that's outside the wheelhouse of self-medicating with MJ.
Best of luck, and sorry about your mom. My mom is going through chemo for lymphoma right now
