Shock struck a man from Colorado, who had been chemotherapy for five years to fight a rare cancer before he knew he had no illness.
James Salaz went to the Montrose Memorial Hospital in 2012, where doctors performed many tests before finding "abnormalities" in the left ventricle.
After taking a lung biopsy, Salaz told doctors that he had a type of cancer, where his excess white blood cells caused tumors on his entire body.
Although he was treated immediately, the malformations remained the same, while Salaz did not visit another doctor. The shock of his life was when the doctor told him that he did not suffer from cancer, but from the disease that caused vasculitis.
In an exclusive interview with KCCO, James said: "I felt great pain under the arm, so I went to the hospital, I had some tests, the doctor told me that there are abnormalities in the left lung."
In 2012, the condition of men was diagnosed with LCH, a rare cancer that began with the proliferation of Langer Hans cells and their large number of proliferation and abnormal, white blood cells that help fight infection.
Unripened white blood cells that cause the "granule" multiply and can lead to damage to the organs.
Although LCH is often diagnosed in childhood, between 2 and 3 years, tumors can occur at any time.
For years, Salaz has undergone chemotherapy and when he visited his main doctor, Chun Kii Lee, in 2017, discovered that he was no longer in hospital and was fired.
Salaz was forced to find a new tumor specialist, and the specialist has already told him that he has no cancer and that he has so called vasculitis, which has caused pain in lung abnormalities.
However, Salaz's condition is exacerbated by a lack of treatment, a form known as Wagner's disease (GPA), which occurs when blood vessels in the nose, sinuses, throat, lungs and kidneys are inflamed.
Inflammation can damage the tissues and organs, and eventually it can be fatal if the patient has not received treatment.
Salaz said that the doctor referred him to a rheumatologist, but when he asked for a meeting, he was told that he had to wait a year before he could schedule a meeting.
He also explained that intensive chemotherapy, which had to treat cancer, made it infected with pancreatitis, which would live with it for the rest of their lives.
