My husband had a large lump removed from the back of his neck. At the time of removal it had excessive bleeding. He went into the hospital to have it surgically removed. The first attempt was in the doctors office the second attempt was 1 week later on Nov 29,2007. His skin started to flake off and turned bright red he went into the emergancy room and they said he had dermities, over the next month he became weaker and lost a lot of weight. We were told that the lump was not cancer. He was a healthy man of 62 years of age. He went to a internal med doctor who refered him to a oncologist. He had a bone biopsy done and was told he had cancer. The time line is like this: 1. Nov 2006 lump removed, 2. Jan 2007 went to emergency room, 3. March 2007 sees Dr for cold symptoms, 4.April 2007 sees Internal med Dr, 5. May 2007 sees Oncologist and gets cancer diagnosis, 6. Starts chemo (but cancer had already spread to liver), Dies on May 17 2008 just one year after the diagnosis. It should have been caught sooner since he saw 4 Doctors and the one who removed it should have questioned it because of the location.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
