A mother in the UK has died after doctors allegedly took 10 months to diagnose her cervical cancer after dismissing bleeding as a hormonal problem, The Daily Mail reported.
Josephine Suffolk died aged just 29, less than a year after she was diagnosed.
Suffolk has left behind her two sons, Leighton, five, and George, two.
She had said doctors had told her there was nothing wrong with her for months even though she returned five times.
As a result, the time was missed that was necessary for starting a timely treatment.
On the UK National Health Service (NHS) website, “unusual bleeding” is listed as the top symptom of cervical cancer.
Her relatives and friends are deeply angry that doctors allegedly took 10 months to diagnose her cervical cancer.
The scan that revealed the tumor was conducted at the initiative of her friend, but it was too late.
