Yeah! Man gets five different cancers in five years!
A 53-year-old iron worker had a habit of chewing betel nuts and smoking. Five years ago, he felt ill and went for a checkup. He was found to suffer from fourth stage oral cavity cancer. Over the past five years, he was found to have had oral cavity cancer twice, esophageal cancer once, and throat cancer twice.
According to ear, nose and throat doctor Hsu Chia-fang at the Changhua Hospital, to have different cancers away from and apart from the initial location of the first cancer within such a short time span is rare.
