    Have any of you had any "ambulance chaser" attorneys call you about your cancer diagnosis?

    I see all of these adds on tv about if you were diagnosed with this type or that type and used XYZ products please call. I have actually had a couple call me about my diagnosis. It seems a little sketchy to be doing that.

      Only after a fender bender. It was the only way I got a copy of the police report! Multiple calls and mailings. And the chiropractors came out of the woodwork! I got rid of most of them when I said I worked for a workers comp TPA.

      I don't have FB, Instagram or any social media exposure. I hide behind my username on the web, so ambitious attorneys will find it very difficult to locate me. I live in great hiking territory, and that is exactly what I would tell them to do.

      My lung cancer (adenocarcinoma) is too common - no one has called me. I do see ads all of the time for mesothelioma so am not horribly surprised that you have been called. My first question, though, is how they know your diagnosis. Where's HIPPA?

      LWC -- Believe me, HIPAA can be breached. Should NEVER be, but it can be.
