Remember the Zebra

In medical school, students are taught “when you hear hoof beats think horses,” meaning when presented with a symptom a physician should consider the most common causes associated with those symptoms.

This adage works well when the disease is a common condition.  But for people with uncommon ailments such as Carcinoid Cancer, this often results in years of misdiagnosis due to symptoms that frequently mimic more common diseases.

The medical community must remember to think beyond horses when they hear hoof beats because the approaching animal could be the less common zebra. This is why the message of the Carcinoid Cancer community is  REMEMBER THE ZEBRA.
