Urgent Care News
27 July, 2015
Manhattan college student Frida Orozco thought she had a bad case of the flue – with a fever and cough that lasted for weeks. But what she believed was a routine visit to Urgent Care quickly led to a shocking diagnosis – it was lung cancer.
Orozco, 29, a nonsmoker and a vegan who had always been health, could not believe what the doctors were saying.
“I was kind of numb, and just listening to what they were telling me,” Orozco said. “It dawned on me, ‘I have something serious’ right away. I was like ‘I’m going to die’.”
Instead, that visit to urgent care likely saved her life.
