GPs missing cancer symptoms
Here are just some of the emails we received from listeners about cancer diagnosis.Do you have a similar story?
“I have recently experienced cancer care of my husband, father & step daughter. The weak link in the chain, for all three, was the GP.”
“My mother died in March 2008 from Ovarian Cancer. My husband died in June 2008 from Malignant Melanoma. They received great care once they had got past their GPs”
“My 15 year old son was told by the GP that he had school phobia, ME, a collapsed lung and pneumonia, before sending him for an x-ray which confirmed lymphoma. “
“While I've been very impressed with the treatment of my cancer I feel very very badly let down by the NHS on diagnosis.”
“Two years ago at age 58 I went to my male GP with reduced urinary flow, a symptom associated with prostate problems… He just told me he did not want to do a PSA test because it was “unreliable” and had “a high rate of false positives” that resulted in “unnecessary” and “invasive” procedures”
“My husband, who died from lung cancer, had a bad initial experience with his GP… This GP's failure to refer him on may not have changed the outcome, but the problem of getting past the GP gatekeeper is a reason for some scepticism in accessing specialist treatment.”
“My Mother went to her GP about a back problem, she was sent away with a leaflet teaching her how to lift..... I heard her scream one night; called my GP who left saying to me ''it’s not as bad as it sounds''. Turned out her spine had collapsed as the result of a tumour.”
“It's no use going to the GP if they won't listen. My husband was diagnosed with gallstones but died of cancer of the liver and pancreas. Neither the GP nor the consultant would listen when he wanted more investigations. He was only prescribed painkillers and antidepressants. Afterwards, the pharmacist said "Well, I did wonder (if he had cancer)."
