Cancer is one of the most common and most feared diseases in the world. In fact, 38.5% of people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. As a result, a great deal of time and money is being poured into research so that we can make this disease a thing of the past.
It is highly likely that you know someone with the disease because there are so many different types of cancer. Unfortunately, this all-too-common disease can take a number of forms, and there are certain cancers which are a lot more deadly than others. Lung and bronchial cancer, for example, have the highest mortality rate in the United States. Those diagnosed with cancer rely on the support of their friends and family to get through one of the most difficult times of their lives. However, we also depend on the support of our doctors, and it is in them that we put all of our trust. After all, they are medical experts who are bound by law to do the best that they can to ensure that we are kept safe and healthy. Doctors are professionally obligated to keep your medical history private. Above all, they are supposed to be honest with you and are forbidden from withholding information from you and/or misleading you about your health. And why would they? They have our best interests at heart, right? Well, as it turns out, not all doctors do. Some doctors break the code of conduct that has been put into place, especially in the United States where medicine is big business, and, because of this, have falsely diagnosed people with cancer in order to make more money. How does diagnosing people with cancer increase a doctor’s income? Well, when a patient is diagnosed with cancer, doctors receive a kickback from their insurance company when they undergo chemotherapy. This means that doctors receive a lot more money than they would have otherwise done. Therefore, it’s not just patients who are losing out as a result of false diagnoses, but everyone else, as the insurance companies have been billed millions of dollars for unnecessary medical treatments, making the cost of insurance higher. Former oncologist Dr. Sayed Mohammed has revealed that he became aware of this unsettling trend over a decade ago:
“Many of these unscrupulous physicians are like businessmen without a conscience. The only difference is they have your health and trust in their hands – a very dangerous combination when money is involved.”
Former Michigan doctor, Farid Fata, orchestrated one of the largest health care frauds in US history. In 2013, he confessed to intentionally diagnosing people with cancer when he was fully aware that they were healthy.
