What is the Dumbest Thing a Patient has Ever Said to You?

In clinical practice, doctors always come across many patients who are difficult to deal with and when asked about their medical problems, do not understand the question and give the dumbest possible answers.

Here is a story I have to share with you all:

I remember a school friend of mine having tonsilitis, he asked me on WhatsApp whether he would be fine. I told him about treatment and surgeries. He sounded very scared by this tonsilitis thing.
Then he asks me “Do you think I have Censar?”.
I was wondering what the hell in the world is this condition called “Censar”.
After few seconds I realized that He was asking about “Cancer”. I said no buddy, It is tonsilitis only and no need to worry so much about it.

Have you ever come across such kind of patients in your clinical practice? Share your experience with other medicos and aspiring medicos.
