    this shows just how confusing medicine can be.. one day these patients have the scary "C" word hanging over their heads, the next day they havent though nothing about their condition itself changed.

    how many mistakes, things taken for granted are in medicine of today?

    Real science has NO certainties, none
    Facts and thus hypothesis and then action from that changes as we learn more each day.


    Some things are so basic and "solid" that little if anything changes, for example basic mechanical engineering relies on physics and chemistry of what you may call as "rough", prime, basic facts.
    For example, building a steam engine.
    However, over time we do learn better ways to build steam engines so the ones today are vastly more efficient than those of the 1800s. The physics are the same, some chemistry has changed in that newer alloys etc maybe used
    but we learn much better designs of boilers etc.
    New eyes looking at things each generation come up with new ideas.
