• A Cancer Misdiagnosis Tragedy

    Posted on October 15th, 2018 admin No comments

    It’s a tragic case that is all too familiar to a cancer misdiagnosis attorney in Cleveland. A 32-year old mother was told the lump in her breast was just a blocked milk duct, only two months after giving birth. Doctors told her the lump would “go away when I had the baby,” Anna Alessandro, of Stockton-on-Tees, England, told TeessideLive.

    A few months later the lump was still there. When she went back to the specialist, doctors discovered that the cancerous lump had spread to the lymph nodes under her arm, two vertebrae, and her sternum. A few months later, the cancer spread to her bones. Alessandro has been told it’s incurable.

    She urges all women to do self-checks to protect themselves.

    “The girls will know what happened to me but what can explain cancer to a 4-year-old?” Alessandro told Metro News. “I have said to Ashley I am probably not going to be here at the age when the girls will have to check their breasts but make sure they check them. I never checked my breasts, it isn’t something that is brought up for younger women. I want women to check their breasts more and if there is a problem go to their [doctor] and don’t take no for an answer.”
