TRUTH !!
Sister Joseph, a surgical assistant at Saint Mary's hospital in Rochester, Minn. had a knack for spotting malignant lumps on patients. On several occasions, she found a particular kind of lump in patient's navels that would turn out to be associated with cancer.
In 1949, ten years after her death, the condition was re-named from "pants-button
umbilicus" to "Sister Joseph's Nodule" in her memory.
