Fran Drescher: It took me two years and eight doctors to get a proper cancer diagnosis

Speaking to The Washington Post Tuesday, Fran Drescher, actress and founder of the Cancer Schmancer Foundation, revealed the difficulties of assessing and diagnosing cancer. “It took me two years and eight doctors to get a proper diagnosis for uterine cancer,” Drescher said. “We have a medical philosophy that if you hear hooves galloping, don’t look for a zebra, it’s probably a horse, but if you happen to be a zebra you are slip through the cracks.”
