Orioles' Trey Mancini Diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer at Age 28

Trey Mancini, one of the star players for the Baltimore Orioles, has revealed he has stage 3 colon cancer at the age of 28.

After getting some blood results with low iron, Trey went in for a colonoscopy and endoscopy, and doctors presumed he had Celiac Disease. Instead, they found a malignant tumor in his colon.

“I was still woozy from the anesthesia, but before he even said the word cancer I was thinking to myself, There’s no way that he’s about to say what I think he’s about to say. And then he said it: They had found a malignant tumor in my colon. My dad’s an ob-gyn. I’m familiar with the way doctors talk. I knew immediately that this was real,” Trey wrote for the Players Tribune. “There was really no indication that anything was wrong other than me just feeling a little more tired than normal. Everything that comes up when you google colon cancer? I didn’t have any of it. And so without that second blood test [given by his MLB team] I probably would not have discovered the tumor until I had a total blockage of my colon. Instead, from the day I was diagnosed to when the tumor was removed was just six days — March 6 to March 12.”

“I have Stage III colon cancer. I started chemotherapy on April 13. And I am so lucky,” he said.

“It could happen to anybody. We hear that all the time, but it really is true. I certainly heard it, and I never in a million years thought something like this would happen to me. And a simple blood test was all it took. It expedited everything,” he said.

We’re wishing Trey well and hope he makes a quick recovery.

Meanwhile, the MLB has been greatly effected by Coronavirus.
