a doctor would ask.
A young man sought treatment for back pain and rectal bleeding. The doctor misdiagnosed him with hemorrhoids or possibly ulcerative colitis. He had made several trips to the hospital emergency room before his sudden weight loss was noticed. Tests showed colon cancer which had spread to his liver and lungs. He was at stage four of the disease and chemo gave him another 2 years before he died.
