    Oh No (Health insurance issue): After months of much pain my sister took me to ER. I thought I had severe
    Case of hemmoroids. I was so sore Dr could not do rectal exam so I was sent
    To have cat scan. Cat scan determined I would have surgery for observation
    An abscess was found along with fistulas. Biopsies were performed and it was
    determined I had cancer. I was told it was Rectal cancer and needed further treatment
    Yesterday I had appt with oncologist where she told me I have anal cancer
    She thinks it is in stage 2 or 3. I still need a pet scan and a rectal sonogram
    Meanwhile I am mortified that I have this kind of cancer and wonder why I
    have never been told I have the HPV virus. I've had a hysterectomy because
    Of thyroids, not a mention of HPV. Last June I had a colonoscopy where they
    Removed a polyp but once again no mention of HPV virus
    Also to make matters worse I have no medical insurance
    If anyone could give me advise or ideas on how to get treatment with no
    Money or insurance PLEASE let me know. I've been told there are resources
    Out there for people in my predicament I just don't know where
    Thank you so much
