a doctor would ask.
A young girl sought doctors advice after she suffered persistent pain in her foot. She was told it was sprained ankle. Persistent foot pain and repeated visits to the doctor resulted in the doctor saying her pain could be as a result of her weight and that she was an attention seeker. An MR scan was organized more than 6 months later after a physiotherapist believed the pain stemmed from her back. Soft tissue cancer was diagnosed and emergency treatment begun. The late diagnosis left her with permanent nerve damage.
