See what questions
a doctor would ask.
A 28 year old woman went to doctors with a lump in her breast but was told she was too young to have breast cancer. She was told it was a hormonal lump. She was referred to a breast-screening clinic where she was told it was a cyst. Eventually breast cancer was confirmed. The woman requested a mastectomy but was offered chemo instead. Chemo failed so she underwent a mastectomy but died not long after. The woman started legal action against the hospital as soon as she was diagnosed with cancer.
