The shock came to a man from Colorado, who had been chemotherapy for five years to fight a rare cancer, before he knew he had not had the disease.
James Salaz went to the Montrose Memorial Hospital in 2012, where doctors did many tests before finding "abnormalities" in his left lungs.
After taking a lung biopsy, Salaz told doctors that he had a type of cancer, where his superb white blood cells caused a tumor to form over his body.
Although being treated immediately, the malformations remained the same, until Salaz visits another doctor. His life was shocked when the doctor told him that he was not suffering from cancer, but from a disease that caused vasculitis.
In a unique interview with KKCO, James said: "I felt very painful under the armpit area, so I went to hospital. I had some tests. The doctor told me that then abnormalities in my left lungs. "
In 2012, the condition of men with LCH, a rare cancer, was diagnosed with starting with increasing the cells of Langer Hans and increasing numbers in large numbers and abnormal blood cells, which help fight against infection.
The immature blood cells, which cause "granuloma", multiply and cause damage to the organ.
Although LCH is often diagnosed with childhood, between 2 and 3 years old, tumors can occur at any age.
For years, Salaz was taking chemotherapy and when she visited a chief doctor, Chun Kyi Lee, in 2017, discovered that she was no longer working in hospital and she was dismissed.
Salaz was forced to find a new tumor specialist, and the expert had already told him he had no cancer and had a vasculitis of this name, which caused the left lung abnormalities.
However, Salaz's condition is exacerbated by a lack of treatment, a form known as Wagner (GPA) disease, which occurs when there are blood vessels in the nose, sinus, neck, lungs and cracked kidney.
Inflammation can cause damage to tissues and organs, and may eventually be fatal, if the patient has not been treated.
Salaz said the doctor had referred to a rhetorologist, but when he asked for an appointment, we were told he had to wait a full year before he had an appointment.
He also explained that intense chemotherapy, he had to treat cancer, is infected with pancreatitis, who will live with him for the rest of his life.
