Trent Williams- Medical Problem- Cancerous Growth in Head

Recommended Posts

Here is the link to why Trent was so pissed at the Skins medical staff.  

http://www.nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/0ap3000001071692/article/trent-williams-says-he-had-cancerous-growth-removed

 

If I were him I would have done the same.  They knew about this for five years and if it went longer, he could have died or had very serious complications.  Team medical staffs are a very important part of the organization and I think we as fans underestimate the trauma that these guys may go through. Instead everyone is concentrated on the money they make and the performance they have on the field. 

 

We forget that these are men with wives, kids and parents who depend on them, love them and need them. I think society in general has lost its touch with humanity and wants to continually judge performance and value it over relationship.  That's kind of sad.

Wait a second. When you say "they knew about this for five years" are you suggesting the Skins knew it was cancer and kept him in the dark? 

 

Unfortunately things are missed every day in the world. Agreed with the part about family and what's really important, but after the thing is growing on his head at some point you'd think he'd see a second doctor. Dermatologist, something. 

 

Cripes I just googled "lump on my head for three years getting larger" and skin cancer is numero uno.

 

In related news, I'm a bit of a hypochondriac and am now certain I have skin cancer.

I don’t know about this condition nor did I stay at at holiday inn express last night... but it feels like with constant access to world class medical professionals that a growth would get earlier follow up. 6 years feels like a long time. But there could be a lot of simple explanations.

I can't begin to imagine how the Redskins' staff dermatologist could have possibly misdiagnosed this.

It was actually his spleen that was the problem.

Right, but I acknowledged I’m a hypochondriac and figured it was all in my head.

One might think that the team doctor might’ve recommended a referral option?

 

but you do you, Tom.

Perhaps they were wishing you recovery from hypochondria?

Most doctors will send you to a dermatologist if you have a mole, let alone some strange growth on your head that's been growing for 6 years.

I wish for a wellness for whatever ails you.

And seriously, I hope Trent can kick cancer's ass

And it’s possible they did and he blew it off or that this presents eerily similar to something common and is rare itself... but on the surface, yup, exactly my thought

I am familiar with DFSP.  They are very rare and can resemble something benign like a cyst but are malignant.  They can fool dermatologists let alone a team GP.   They may require an extensive surgery and can metastasize if  not treated.
