Cancer and X-Rays

I have cancer of unknown origin which in my opinion was caused by X-Rays I received in Iraq but I can't find a oncologist who belives that X-Rays might cause cancer even though the Federal Goverment now states they do.
Until I do find one who will state that, I can't get disability from my employer while I am undergoing chemotherpy.
Can you help me?

How many x-rays did you receive in Iraq? From everything I've read, you have to have an extremely high number of x-rays in order for there to really be any cause for concern. I honestly do not think you will find a physician who will state that there is a link.

I don't know what type of cancer you have, but sometimes there is no apparent cause. It's an unknown. It just develops. Perhaps you should speak with an attorney regarding the disability. Sometimes the doctors, human resources people, or government workers responsibile for evaulating the claims are not well trained enough or are just not good at properly explaining things.

I do wish you luck with your treatment and hope that it responds immediately. You will be in my prayers.
