Doctors are a widely respected group of people. They've attended school for long enough to possess an inspiring amount of knowledge that most of the population does not access at all.

I could never be a doctor, it's just too disgusting. And that's just the every day to day of it all.

I couldn't imagine all the extras, like finding things in patients that are off the wall crazy.

Like what in the world are people putting in their bodies? That's why there are warning labels on just about everything.

I use to think some warnings were an overkill, but clearly I was mistaken. Brace yourselves kids, the body is full of surprises.

Redditor u/sleeplessegg1 wanted doctors out there to share with us about some "odd" discoveries by asking:

Doctors of Reddit, what was the weirdest thing you even seen in someone's body?

Reddit has the ability to bring people from all over the world together. This time, Reddit user MrKnowsEverything asked a serious question of the doctors of the world.

MrKnowsEverything posted:

"Doctors of reddit, what is the rarest disease that you've encountered in your career?"

The responses ranged from genetic mutations, to mental disorders, to injury from an accident. Often, leaving doctors with more questions than answer. A few stories end in a miracle, and a few in tragedy.

Some of these tales are gruesome. So, readers beware.

I use to to believe that I wanted to be a doctor. I really wanted to help save people's lives and I was fantastic at the game of Operation. So I thought that could be perfect. Then one day I fell off my bike and had a pretty hard crash to the ground. The outcome was nothing serious. When I looked down I noticed no skin on my knees, not a ton of blood, but no skin or mutilated skin. No bone or flesh hanging out, no reason to alert 911. I then puked and passed out. It was then I realized... I'm going to let the doctors... doctor and that ain't me.

Redditor u/Master_Painis was hoping the medical people reading would share a bit about days in the trenches by asking... Surgeons of reddit, what was the most fucked up thing you've seen?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?
