If you have cancer, you have cancer, and even evil insurance companies are entitled to take this into account!
You've been grossly overpaying, but that's the nature of insurance companies, too.
Many banks offer free policies to their customers, with added fees for medical history. I'm with Nationwide, and pay £140 per year for worldwide travel cover, and that's for hypertension as well as cancer.
Check with your bank, and failing that, shop around. Insurance companies almost invariably halve their quotes if you say "thanks, I've got a couple more companies to ring, then I'll get back to you".
I'm not saying they are a bunch of cowboys, even though they are. I'm much too polite.
