High School Student Misdiagnosed with Bone Cancer

Posted under Uncategorized

A high school student in Indiana recently found out that he was misdiagnosed with cancer, four months after beginning chemotherapy when he was told by doctors that he had bone cancer.

The 18-year-old man was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, which is the most common form of bone cancer. He then began undergoing chemotherapy in December of 2010. Because of the chemo, he lost his hair and lost a substantial amount of weight, emaciating his over 6-foot frame. Last week, a doctor informed the teenager that he had a cyst, not a tumor. The cyst was removed as doctors worried it may have been cancerous, and the young man is now cancer-free.

The student has expressed his relief in the situation and is recovering from the surgery he underwent to remove the cyst.
