Family Receives $492,000 For Cancer Misdiagnosis
Fox News reports the family of a 23-year-old British mother of two was awarded $492,000 after she died from an aggressive cancer.
The mother was sent home on several occasions from the hospital when doctors claimed there was nothing wrong with her, but that she needed psychiatric attention because she was imagining her illness. She died four weeks after her last hospitalization from peritonitis and malignant non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
The young woman became ill in May 2004. In February 2005, she had exploratory surgery which revealed fluid above the liver. She was admitted three more times to the hospital with another surgery following on March 7, 2005. This surgery revealed an extensive malignant tumor. Shortly afterwards she suffered a ruptured bowel causing peritonitis which lead to multi-organ failure. She died on March 24.
