An illustration of a matter that never ought to have developed the way it did.  Unfortunately, some physicians seem to suppose that young people do not have colon cancer.  In this scenario, a woman on several instances told her physician for 5 years that she had.  Still, her doctor kept telling her that she just had hemorrhoids.  This is the all too often the fall back diagnosis given by these doctors – in spite of the fact that they never do the tests required to discover the real explanation for the bleeding.  When the doctor ultimately suggested that she get a sigmoidoscopy she was 29 years of age and by then had stage 4 colon cancer.  By  this point the number of people who survive for at least 4 years is under ten percent.

She chose to battle the cancer aggresively because she wanted to stay alive for her husband and her young boy.  She had surgery to take off the cancer.  She then went through chemotherapy in order to decrease the cancer in her liver (the site of the metastasis)  and then a second surgery to take out that tumor once it shrunk.  She ad pelvic radiation treatment.  A short time later the cancer metastasized to her lungs.  Her surgeon was then able to remove a tumor from one of the lungs and then she underwent yet more chemotherapy to reduce the size of the tumor in the other lung.  When the chemotherapy was completed the surgeon was then able to remove the cancer from the other lung.

This young wife and mother wound up with colon cancer metastasis and needed to go through chemotherapy that made her highly sick and then went through early menopause brought on by her treatment (preventing her from ever having any more children) – all this totally avoidable.  All due to the delay caused by her doctor.

The above is not medical or legal advice. You ought to check with a physician without delay if you believe you have indications of cancer or any other health problem. Consult a medical negligence attorney in the event you believe your doctor missed your symptoms or in some way delayed your diagnosis.
