I'd give it to the sup with a request that you would like all comments back inside of (say) 2 weeks. To publish it without their consent or having viewed it, particularly if it is related to your PhD, may be construed as the hieght of rudeness and a deliberate slight of them. One sure-fire way to wreck your professional relationship.
Legally (I think) the university has posession of all your data, not him. Not sure he can ask for your data unless you were employed by him specifically to generate this analysis. I would have thought the nice thing to do would be to allow you to write it up and take first authorship but it may be worthwhile checking with student services to see where you stand.
As with Hazyjane, whose answers are spot on.
Also factor in the time commitment (to doing said offending PhD) and, if your biomed science course is IBMS accredited, a right royal ramping up of the workload.
Not that I have anything against the IBMS.... no really... ;-)
Enforced rest: take advantage of it but I hope you feel better soon.
As an aside, don't worry too much about the cancer scare: if it was anything serious they would have had you back within 2 weeks and under the knife/chemo. Cross that one off your list of things to worry about and just spend a few days relaxing. Work improves after that, honest. If it doesn't - blame it on the moderators :-)
I'd agree with everyone here and add my personal ethos: treat your PhD as a bone fide job - it is so easy to slack off when you see others doing the same but don't do it. The whole process is exhausting and frustrating and irritating and yet so immensely rewarding at the end.
Above all, have fun.
Tell him/her/it straight up truth with tact: tell them you're not engaging with the work, you feel this career path is not for you and, while you sincerely appreciate all the time and effort they have put in, you feel it would be unfair both on them and you to expend further valuable resources for suboptimum gain in a field that leaves you feeling trapped.
Voila, damn I'm good 8-)

What an absolute b****rd! Ditch this loser, no-one deserves THAT kind of behaviour from anyone. Hang on to your PhD, at least you know where you stand with that but get shot of that w****r as fast as possible.
From what you've said (as a microbiologist) it would be my thoughts they just want to assess your vaccination status and determine any chronic, transmissable illness. I don't see you'll have any problems.
Word to the wise; go with an experienced GP or doctor (if you are at all worried) - new medics tend to be over cautious and prone to drama, while the oldies use more common sense! (sorry to any new medics ;-)8-) )
Enjoy your project!
