    As there are no miracles, what happens there is a big hoax. They pretend to remove something from the patient's body, a piece of meat looking like cancer tissue. In fact they just keep it hidden in their hand all this time, then cover the skin with blood and there it is. This is the old coin-behind-ear trick. He starts laughing, because he realizes how foolish it was of him to believe that this miracle was possible in the first place. It's all a joke for him.
