Title Diagnosis of colorectal cancer in a 75 year old male: A case study [case report]
Journal J Acad Chiropr Orthoped (JACO). 2014 Sep;11(3):Online access only p 4-11
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

This case report describes a 75 year old male patient with severe gluteal and posterior hip pain secondary to colorectal cancer (CRC) misdiagnosed as musculoskeletal (MSK) in origin by multiple practitioners. Suspicion of a non-musculoskeletal origin led to referral for a colonoscopy with a subsequent diagnosis of CRC-Stage IIIB. The purpose of this study is to identify missed diagnostic opportunities, point out the need to understand age related risk factors, demonstrate the role of chiropractic physicians in health screening, and raise awareness of the risks of diagnostic overshadowing.
