I have cancer.
I have wanted to say that, maybe even scream that, to every person that I have seen and talked to over the past 11 days. But it is not polite to scream things at random people (because you would be considered a crazy person), so I have been silent.
But now it is time to share.
I have cancer. Colorectal cancer to be exact. And it is Stage 3 (T3cN2 to be exact).
I needed to get those words out before I begin sharing my story with the interweb. And i promise i will be blogging my story and updating as much as possible.
But for now, i have cancer. I am 40. I have no family history. I have no risk factors. I am in the best shape of my life. I have no pain. I am a physician. Cancer was never on my radar. But now, it is the #1 enemy and there is no alternative other than to beat it.
