"A mother-of-four died after doctors misdiagnosed her cervical cancer 30 times
An inquest hears that Jeannine Harvey was so crippled with pain she couldn't even get out of bed, but a doctor told the 33-year-old her agony was caused by anxiety
A mother-of-four died after doctors missed 30 chances to diagnose her cervical cancer, an inquest heard.
Jeannine Harvey, 33, was so debilitated by pain she was unable to get out of bed without help.
However, despite consultations with her GP and doctors at three hospitals, her cervical cancer was repeatedly misdiagnosed as a potential torn ligament, protruding discs, sarcoma and "nerve pain".
Doctors even suggested at one point that her agony was caused by anxiety."
