With a significant change in her blood pressure and pulse, her heart should be investigated by following;


1) An echocardiography

2) EKG


The stress can be a factor for lowering of her blood pressure and pulse. Since her insurance has mentioned that her investigations could be covered, you should go ahead and get them done by her primary care physician.


Cancer is not likely to be issue for her symptoms.
