Undiagnosed Cancer - A Statistic That Needs to Be Studied
I work in a profession which involves helping a lot of older people. Because of this, I hear many stories dealing with health and healthcare.
One thing I have begun to notice over the past few years is
the plethora of cases cropping up where
people had stomach pain,
or trouble breathing,
or a pain in their side,
or whatever it is,
THE DOCTOR TOLD THEM THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THEM,
OR SOMETHING MINOR,
THEN THREE MONTHS LATER THEY FIND THEY HAVE STAGE FOUR CANCER,
AND THREE MONTHS TO A YEAR AFTER THAT,
THEY ARE DEAD.
Never really got the treatment they needed. Often the only treatment they ever do receive is palliative. Maybe some last desperate attempts at chemo. Nothing real.
My question is this:
IS UNDIAGNOSED CANCER ON THE RISE SINCE OBAMACARE?
HAS THERE BEEN AN INCREASE IN PEOPLE NOT BEING DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE?
