A woman who suffered from kidney stones was misdiagnosed with cancer of the kidney and subsequently underwent an operation to remove her kidney. She was informed 3 weeks after the surgery that doctors had misinterpreted a scan of her kidney where a stone resembled that of a large tumor, and that the kidney was normal. The woman was relieved to hear of the correct diagnosis, however, she had been planning her funeral and was frustrated not to have the mistake revealed earlier.
