His wife was a patient at the clinic where I worked in my early days as a doctor. I saw her regularly for hypertension. But on one visit, she was more concerned about her husband - let's call him Pedro. He was having stomach pains and difficulty swallowing. I told her to make an appointment for him with me. When I saw him, Pedro explained that he had lost weight and was having trouble swallowing solid food. A barium swallow study confirmed my fears: He had esophageal cancer. Another doctor at the clinic received the report before I saw Pedro again and made an urgent referral to surgery.

Drama continued unfolding around Tiger Woods Tuesday, when his mother-in-law was rushed from his Florida home to a hospital with stomach pain and Gatorade announced it has discontinued its Tiger Focus sports drink. Amid focus on whether Woods will lose lucrative endorsement deals as a result of "transgressions" he admitted to in the days after he crashed his Cadillac Escalade outside his home and reports emerged of the golfer's extra-marital affairs, the Gatorade cancellation was in no way connected to the negative publicity, according to a company statement.
