See everyone, see! This is why you should only go to WebMD!

So there's something wrong with your body, where's the first place to turn?

Most of us just get on WebMD, type in a few nagging symptoms and conclude there's a rare form of cancer flowing within us that hasn’t been seen in decades. But, believe it or not, some brave individuals actually go to the doctor for, you know, actual help. Unfortunaltey for them, doctor's don't always give you great news …

This guy diagnoses more people with cancer than any other doctor in America

For one 44 year-old French man, a routine doctor check-up got very, very weird. The man, whose name was witheld for privacy concerns, went to the doctor complaining of weakness in his left leg (WebMD says the best cure for that is amputation). The doctors ran some test and failed to find anything wrong with the guy.

After a more thorough investigation, the doctors discovered he was missing a large part of his brain — between 50-75 percent of it was gone. How the man was able to survive 44 years without incident amazed doctors. He has two children, a steady job and a slightly bellow average IQ — fulfilling life things not many full-brained people could ever say they’ve accomplished.

How exactly did he end up with half a brain, you ask? Doctors say it's related to a condition the man suffered from after birth. Hydrocephalis — "water on the head" — is a condition that occurs closely after birth, where fluid builds up between the brain and skull. Not good. The man suffered from the condition early in his life, and even had the water annually removed until he was 14. After his teen eyars, the doctors told him he would be fine without the ongoing treatment, but the it came back and "ate" away at his brain for over 30 years. 

Researchers say this case shows the power of the brain to re-wire itself after injury (known as "brain plasticity" for all our psych majors out there). The whole story gives us a better reason to continue avoiding the doctor while blindly trusting WebMD for all ailments, both current and future.
