I think somebody I know is faking pancreatic cancer. He is a young adult in his upper 20s, he alleged that he was misdiagnosed over a year ago with having a virus, but he never got better so he went back to a doctor who did two rounds of blood work and a CT with contrast and told him based on just those things that he had stage 2 pancreatic cancer . So he self refers and plans a trip to the mayo clinic. Once there he alleges that he was put on a chemo therapy pill called "Methotrexate" and alleges they told him that chemotherapy pills aren't as harsh as iv chemotherapy because his body couldn't handle iv chemo, at this point there still has not been a biopsy. Spends a week out there just having scans and apparently taking chemo drugs and alleges he was sent the 600 miles back home and told that they are taking a break for the holidays and to return on the 16th of December to have an egd with biopsy Colonoscopy and something with kidneys because they are allegedly now not working right. He told half of the people in his life he has stage two pancreatic adenocarcinoma and the other half stage one pancreatic cancer.
