    Default Should she sue?

    Be warned, this is a heart breaking story.

    After reading this, 1 - it gave me no faith in the NHS and 2 - it made me think, are people like this woman able to sue for negligence?

    Should lumps be taken more seriously, ie ultrasounds carried out and biopsies or should you trust your Dr?

    The nurse who told her that should find another job.

    I think she should spend the rest of her life making memories with her child. Suing takes too much out of a person.

    I also think that since this is the Daily Mail it is likely all complete bull****. Hope so for her sake.

    There is currently no cure or treatment for the condition, although Katrina is currently trialling a tablet for kidney cancer, which could help stop the growth of the tumours.
    I don't think she can sue just because the nurse was ugly about it. And I think she would lose anyway, because it sounds like even if they had caught it earlier there isn't much they could have done. Its sad but I think she should try and enjoy the time she has, which it sounds like she is doing.

    This is what I was thinking too.

    But I also agree that any nurse that tells a patient that comes in with a strange lump to "stop being a drama queen" needs a new line of work.
