I took out my actual diagnosis in my PS, so should I explain in detail what kind of cancer I have in my GPA addendum? I feel like if I never mention it, it almost sounds made up? Should I just say " cancerous brain tumor" or should I instead use the medical term: "malignant eppendymoma"? Should I explain exactly what treatments I got, and when, or just make it general: such as, my treatments ceased after my surgery in Feb 2009, and since I have had straight A's which is the best indicator of my potential to perform as a student not burdened by cancer treatments,.. obv not in those exact words, but you get the idea...
