A 72 year old man went to see a board certified colon rectal specialist because he was bleeding bright red blood from his rectum and having trouble going to the bathroom. He was sent for a barium enema test which showed 2 filling defects (polyps). The report recommended correlation with sigmoidoscopy. The barium enema findings were ignored by the specialist who never performed a sigmoidoscopy and did not send him for a colonoscopy. Instead the specialist treated him for hemorrhoids for six months. When the hemorrhoids stopped bothering him he stopped going for treatment. He was diagnosed with colon cancer 5 years later when he returned to the same doctor with more bleeding. He underwent resection surgery with complications and was forced to wear a colostomy bag for 2 years following surgery until the colon cancer finally killed him. The cancer could have been removed endoscopically without any surgery at all if the doctor had followed up with the recommendations of the barium report.
