Why does Google think every symptom is cancer??

Lol! I swear, I have to stop Googling things.

My little boy was in the hospital, and they still don't know what was wrong. I have NEVER seen a human being in such excruciating pain. Both his daddy and I were in tears, and shot after shot of morphine didn't help him. Although, they found a completely unrelated issue that has me scratching my head. We will hopefully get more answers on that tomorrow after his U/S. *sigh* I think I have grey hairs, now.

I know! I am having a sharp, stabbing pain in my left breast today and think it might be a perimenopausal symptom....Every site I pull up says its 95% NOT cancer! OK...then WTF IS it?

Probably the same reason as so many meds advertised on tv may cause anal leakage.
Sorry about your child.....that's frustrating and scary.

Because pharmaceutical companies pay big bucks.

I took a test on WebMD about depression. No matter what answer I chose it told me I could be depressed and I should see my doctor.

Because cancer can come in so many forms.

I'm sorry about your little buddy. Is he feeling any better yet?

Severe abdominal pain was basically it, then a low grade fever for a while, later. They did a CT scan, which showed what they thought was an undescended testicle, and unrelated. They admitted him and let him out the next afternoon. After seeing his Dr. today, he thinks it's a hernia, which would actually explain all his symptoms, and is often mistaken for an undescended testicle.

He's doing a lot better. Hopefully his U/S tomorrow will confirm what his dr. thinks is a hernia. If it's not, then idk what the hell showed up in the CT scan.

Ugh...I have a hernia too. I am seeing the doctor on thursday. It doesnt usually hurt that bad but sometimes I think a baby alien is going to pop out of my belly.
