A: Blood testing is very specific. Routine blood tests for a diabetic have the primary purpose of determining a blood sugar level. It is entirely reasonable that an entirely unrelated disease like cancer would only be identified in something akin to an annual checkup or in response to specific complaints that could not be related to diabetes.
It would be prohibitively expensive and unconscionably wasteful to run every conceivable blood test, on any regular basis. I'm sure it is no solace if the individual who was diagnosed with cancer is a friend or family member but hopefully this will help you to understand how such a condition could go undiagnosed for so long a period of time.
A: You need to provide some facts before anyone can help you. For example, how were you forced to take an unpaid medical leave? Does your employer qualify for FMLA? If you "took a leave" without the leave being approved, how is that different from abandoning your job? You have been "trying" to return to work but what have you been "doing" in your effort to return to work? "Runaround" is a conclusion, not a fact. Who is giving you the "runaround" and what are they telling you? You don't need to state anything that identifies you, individually, but you do need to provide some basic facts. Please repost with that information and I'll

A: It depends. Criminal charges are extremely fact-sensitive. To be charged with assault, of any kind, there must be an unpermitted "touching." The basis for charging indecent exposure is generally public nudity. If that was the basis for the charges here, the perpetrator cannot be charged with sexual assault. Like any other assault, sexual assault requires physical contact. If this question is related to a real incident, stop posting on the Internet and seek the advice of private criminal defense counsel or your public defender.
