My 82 year old father was diagnosised with stage 4 colon cancer on March 1 of this year. The colon cancer had already spread to the liver and left lung, when the tumor in the colon was removed. His life expectency after the surgery on March 1 was six months. My father didn't want chemo and/ or radiation. He died six weeks later on April 17. My question is why didn't his primary care doctor detect it sooner? My father has been seeing the doctor for stomach pain for the last year and was only given pain pills and Zantac. I beleive that the colon cancer should have been detected much earlier.
