why would one doctor tell someone that leukemia can be brought on by stress & another doc say it cant?

Update:

if it cannot be brought on by stress why did one doctor say it could?

Update 2:

because of that doctor my partner believes that his mother's leukemia was brought on by the stress he "caused" her by divorcing the wife she forced him to marry (he's Pakistani)

    Stress does not cause any form of cancer, including leukemia. There is absolutely no scientific evidence supporting such a ridiculous claim.

    Apparently, the doctor who claimed that 'stress causes leukemia' is unqualified to practice medicine.

    Leukemia is caused by genetic abnormalities in the bone marrow. Those abnormalities are easily identified during the process of diagnosing leukemia and are a marker of the success of the treatment. Leukemia is never caused by stress but by genetic aberrations!!!

    The mindset of doctors is to treat somebody with drugs, that remark was probably made because the woman had told the MD she had lived healthy, but had been upset over the last while, and the doctor had rationalized his dire diagnosis of her condition this way ( if she had told him she bathed in a pool of toxic waste every night, then the doc would have listed that as the cause of the cancer ). It is important to understand that it is a business to diagnose and "treat" ( with toxins) illness, what caused the disease, if indeed it really is one, is a secondary concern at best . Your friend is not to blame.

    It was probably said by the same stupid doctor that told my daughter nothing was wrong with her and sent her home only to be rushed to the hospital the same day, with a perforated appendix. Thanks to him, she had emergency surgery and she could have died. The guy who said that leukemia can brought on by stress is an idiot.

    There is absolutely no conclusive proof that a disease can be brought on by stress. That doctor is a nut job. Do not let your friend (or yourself if it's you) feel ANY GUILT WHATSOEVER. It is absolutely not their fault that they have leukemia.

    Not all 'doctors' are medical doctors and not all medical doctors are oncologists (specialize in cancer). The doctor who said it could be brought on by stress isn't a cancer specialist.
