I’ve brought up to a few doctors the fact that many people I know have cancer at the site of an injury or infection only to be given a pat on the head and a “there there now, you’re overthinking things again, some cancers just can’t be explained.” This article begs to differ: Old Ideas Spur New Approaches in Cancer Fight.
For me, my breast cancer occurred at the site of a bout of mastitis I had, and the bone tumor is at the site of an old rib injury.
