    I wonder if the tumor stopped the bullet. Now that would be incredible luck.
    Ocassionaly we all get lucky. Sometimes it means more than others. In this guys case especially.

    Still, I would not call getting shot lucky. Had he seen the Dr on a regular basis the tumor would have likely been discovered at some point anyway.

    [conspiracy theory] maybe the guy new all along he had a tumor but didn't have insurance to pay for the operation so he bribed some crackhead to shoot him with a small caliber weapon in the area of the tumor while making it look like a robbery attempt, knowing Dr's would find it when going after the bullet. [/conspiracy theory] :neener:

    I can see it now... I go for my regular checkup, and my Doc says "Just stand in that target frame - we have a new test for cancer!" :what:

    :D

    A friend's mother suffered head injuries in an auto accident. While the doctors were examining her they discovered a brain tumor. She had no pain and showed no symptoms, but the doctors said that if it had been found even a year later it would have been inoperable. The woman is doing fine, and still talks about her "lucky accident."

    So, the inevitable question: Is 9mm adequate if the BG has a big tumor?

    :D :D :D

    It doesn't matter what caliber rifle a proctologist uses, he'll just take you out with a butt-stroke. :uhoh:

    SICK HUMOR - I love it!:D

    About thirty years ago a friend of mine got hit in the head in a minor mining accident. In the process of taking care of the skull fracture, the surgeon found a tumor in the bone of his skull in the area of the impact.

    Sort of a mixed blessing, getting hit in the head with a 30 pound steel sheave block, and ending up better because of it. BTW, he had been having trouble taking a leak until he pulled out his baloon catheter while recovering from the anesthetic!:what: :what: :what: :what: :what:

    I had a buddy who was sitting on a porch and resting his back against the rail. The porch was in disrepair and not very safe, a point brought up by me and a few others. The rail gave way and as my buddy tried to wave his arms around like a chicken to regain balance, he fell about 13' on his back. He was ok except for a little constant pain. He found out at the hospital, after an x-ray, that he had a tumor on his spine. It was removed and he's ok. Funny to see how common this actually is.

    No kiddin. I think I am going to have a tumor implanted away from any vital organs so if I ever get shot , fall from a high place or clobbered by a heavy object, the injury will only be where the tumor is.
