It all started that day at the surgeons office when I thought I was there to talk about having an annoying hemorroid removed. After he examined me, I wondered why he kept asking me if I was there alone or if I had someone with me. Of course I'm alone...I thought to myself. Why would I bring someone with me for a hemorroid?
What he said next would stop my heart. I'm sorry but this is cancer and your going to need chemo & radiation to take care of it. It turned out that the tumor was inside the rectum, but had actually grown OUTSIDE through the anus...thus I thought it was a hemorroid. After my colonoscopy & PET scan...I was facing Stage III Anal cancer.
