CT Scan Reveals Ancient Mummy Had Cancer

posted by Bill Strange - 

A C-T scan is revealing a 2,000 year old mummy found in Egypt suffered from cancer.  Doctors at Crouse Hospital in Syracuse, New York say the mummified man had a tumor on his Fibula located on the lower leg. Doctor Mark Levinsohn says the scan shows it has "all the characteristics of a malignant tumor and one that's somewhat rare." 

Doctors say it's impossible to know whether the tumor killed the mummified man or whether he fell ill and decided to end his own life.
