All too often, I see questions on Askville about medical issues. Like "I have a large growth, about the size of a ping-pong ball, on the back of my neck. It's oozing black liquid. Should I be concerned?"

I couldn't resist having some fun at the latest version of that question.


"I have a very painful bump on the outside of my left foot about1/2 way between the pinkie toe and heel."

Bone spur sounds likely to me, but have it checked. We're web monkeys, not doctors!

"I asked a bunch of idiots on the web about it, and they said it was harmless. So I didn't worry about it. Three years later, it turned out to be cancer. They said they could have saved my leg and life if I'd bothered to see a doctor about it when I first noticed it."

...is what you really don't want to be saying three years from now!
