    H E L P !

    Colonoscopy and insurance coverage

    Had a colonoscopy at 50 that was covered by insurance. Had several polyps removed. Now with new insurance and high deductible, they say that it's now a diagnostic procedure, not preventative. My Mom died from colon cancer so I'm worried. Is there some way my new insurance will cover the colonoscopy? I can't afford the deductible so I can't have it done unless they will pay for it. Any advice on this situation would be appreciated.

Dr. Din then threatened my employment and tried to sue me in an effort to silence after I posted about his grossly inappropriate behavior on social media. I'm afraid of what else he will....

    Please reduce my stressing...

    Hello.  40 year old male.  I was just given a report by a radiologist stating that I have extensive hypointense marrow replacement in about half of my tibia, with a heterogeneous signal.  I also have a soft tissue mass of 4cm x 2cm x 1cm abutting the same upper tibia.  He states these findings are concerning for a malignancy, such as lymphoma, or a bacterial infection.  I have an appointment with an orthopedic oncologist in four days, but I'm seriously stressing and trying to decipher as much....
