I was misdiagnosed with cancer because of a big lump I found on my chest. I was treated for five months at a reputable cancer hospital in Los Angeles, and I received three painful medical procedures, but my situation only worsened because of an infection I developed following an operation. My intuition told me to stop all the treatments at the hospital and return to my family doctor, and so I did. This was the best thing I could have done because, after taking two pills as recommended by the doctor, the lump on my chest discharged overnight and was gone by morning. This was one of the many instances during my 7- year experience where I learned to trust my gut.
