* ''Series/MillionYenWomen'': Implied, then subverted with Yuki. She's at some point seen discussing a brain scan with a doctor who tells her that even with continuing treatment, there is only six months to a year left. It later turns out to be a scan of Yuki's husband, not Yuki herself.

* In ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' this is revealed to be the case with [[spoiler: Nagito Komaeda]]. While it's never revealed in the main story, going through his Free Time Events reveals that [[spoiler: Nagito was diagnosed with malignant lymphoma and frontotemporal dementia right before he was accepted into Hope's Peak Academy and has around a year and a half left to live. May or not be subverted as he appears alive and well in ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'' and ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' but this may be due to [[BornLucky his]] [[BornUnlucky luck]] keeping him alive past his life expectancy.]]

* {{Downplayed}} in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia.'' The [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler first few chapters/episodes]] reveal that [[SupermanSubstitute All-Might]] suffered severe injuries a few years back which, combined with the toll that [[SuperPowerLottery One For All]] takes on the body, leaves him coughing up blood and straining to keep his [[HenshinHero hero form]] for more than a few hours. Thankfully, One For All can be [[SuperEmpowering transferred to another person]], and the series begins with him picking the protagonist, [[AscendedFanboy Izuku/Deku Midoriya]], as his successor so that he can safely retire.

* ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'': [[spoiler:James has a brain tumor. His deal with the Daemon means that as long as his heart's out, it won't progress to the point where it can kill him. With his heart, he'd have three months to live at the outside.]]

* When [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]] thinks he's [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E11OneFishTwoFishBlowfishBlueFish eaten poison blowfish]] and that he has 24 hours to live, he decides telling the kids will just upset them. (Of course, he hasn't actually eaten the poison in the first place.)

* ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' contestant Cindy Stowell competed on the show after being diagnosed with colon cancer and [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments won over $100,000]] over seven episodes. She and the producers made it a point to hide that she was competing despite having only months to live. Sadly, she died only eight days before her episodes aired.



* Litchi Faye-Ling from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' contracted the same corruption that turned her friend Lotte into the creature known as Arakune, and is slowly being consumed by the corruption which will cause either complete memory loss or turning the rest into Arakune. To others, she'll try to say "There's just someone I need to save." and pass off with a reassuring smile and the image of a helpful, compassionate lady that she's fine, to the point that nobody else knows that she's SecretlyDying. Part of her not revealing it may have to do with how she didn't want to burden everyone that doesn't know better with her quest to save Lotte along with her GuiltComplex.

* Inverted in Puccini's ''Theatre/LaBoheme'', where it is Mimi who seems unaware of the gravity of her illness. Rodolfo is the one who knows that if he doesn't give her up and let her find a wealthier man, she will surely die in his impoverished living conditions.

* Violetta from Verdi's ''Theatre/LaTraviata'' is so adept at downplaying her illness that almost no one, not even her love interest, seems to even suspect that she is dying of [[VictorianNovelDisease consumption]] until she is actually on her deathbed.
