The radically liberal comedian Kathy Griffin is begging fans for help interpreting a recent cancer scan of hers after claiming that she was “ghosted” by her doctor. 

‘I Know This Is Crazy…’

Daily Mail reported that Griffin, who claims to have never smoked cigarettes, had half of her lung removed after being diagnosed with stage one lung cancer last year. Despite being a wealthy member of the Hollywood elite, she claims to be having issues finding proper medical help with her latest cancer scan. 

“OK, I know this is crazy but I cannot get an oncologist on the phone and the surgeon who did my half of lung removal has ghosted me,” Griffin, 61, wrote on Instagram alongside screenshots of notes from her scan. “This is what it’s come to people!”

“I’m putting my scan results on Instagram in hopes that somebody will put it under an oncologist’s nose and send me some sort of interpretation in English of what’s going on with my post operation situation!” she added. “Social media can be used for good, dammit!”

Griffin also took to Twitter to post a message that was shorter, but similar.

“You guys, I don’t really have an oncologist & the surgeon who removed half my lung ghosted me, but I think my #lungcancer scan is clean,” she wrote. “So, since I can’t get anyone on the phone out of my thousands of doctors to interpret this, I’m asking #CancerTwitter ! Hey #oncology.”

Anesthesiologist Responds 

Griffin got a response from the renowned anesthesiologist Dr. Jeffrey Swisher almost immediately. 

“Hey Kathy, the report looks great. But to be fully reassured, you really need to schedule an appointment with a pulmonary oncologist and have them look at the actual scan,” he said. “If you are up in SF I can help you find someone. I will be at Code and we can discuss if you want.”

Griffin was quick to respond to Swisher by thanking him and making a confession.

“Thx Doc! I don’t know one,” she wrote. “I don’t even have a pulmonologist. The dude I had is like 85 years old. Also no more men. Not kidding. I’d prefer a female under 50. I’d love recommendations for Cedars, St Johns or UCLA! I’ve had sh**ty care & it makes me extremely fearful and anxious.”

Griffin’s Cancer Diagnosis

Page Six reported that Griffin revealed her cancer diagnosis in August of last year. 

“I’ve got to tell you guys something. I have cancer. I’m about to go into surgery to have half of my left lung removed,” she told her social media followers at the time. “Yes, I have lung cancer even though I’ve never smoked! The doctors are very optimistic as it is stage one and contained to my left lung.”

Griffin then revealed in December of 2021 that she was in remission.

“I’m cancer-free,” Griffin said. “I don’t know why, I had a tumor, right? And I’ve never smoked, and it was in there for 10 years.”

While we certainly do not agree with Griffin’s liberal politics, we also never want to see anyone be forced to battle cancer. That being said, it seems odd that a celebrity in her position would actually be “ghosted” by her doctor. There are two sides to every story, and given Griffin’s questionable credibility in the past, it would certainly be interesting to hear her doctor’s side of it.
