In New Zealand, a 63 year old woman visited the dentist for swelling caused by a tooth implant. Tests were ran and a diagnosis of cancer came back. The cure: To have the right side of her upper jaw removed, followed up with a bit of reconstructive surgery.
HOWEVER!!.. That cancer diagnosis??.. It did NOT belong to her! o_O
From Huffington Post:
Goodness!! I could not imagine! (Bless her heart!!!)
And this is why 2nd and 3rd and 4th opinions should be considered. I'm not talking about if the doc says you have a cold, you should then follow up with another doctor, but if it is something major, definitely go that extra mile before taking drastic measures. And weigh your treatment options.
I'm not faulting this lady at all for trusting the "professionals". (I'm jus' sayin'.)
