FROM THIS EPISODE

Tumors sound like a grim topic, but what we find when we look closely at these anatomical aberrations, are fascinating tales of evolution, immortality, and even…maybe…God? We hear about a tumor that changes modern science, and the tragic untold story of the woman attached to that tumor. We’ll witness terrifying contagious tumors, tumors that bring joy, and tumors that bring ecstasy. And Robert will try to touch -- literally touch -- the tumor that killed President Ulysses S. Grant.
