„Twenty doctors thought my baby’s cancer is just a birthmark”, said angry mother after the tumor of her girl grew to size of a grapefruit, report from Dailymail.
The woman revealed how 20 doctors have rejected that her daughter has a rare type of cancer, assuring her that it is just a birthmark. The little girl stated a chemotherapy course after the doctors finaly discovered that her birthmark is actually a tumor. Isabel, who is only four months old, now has to recover after losing her ear when the surgeons performed operation to remove the tumor.
According to 32-year-old-mother the doctors believed that the purple mark that was originally the size of a golf ball is just a birthmark. They told her that there was “nothing to worry about” when her baby was born with the mark on the left-hand side of its face. But when the scar began to grow and bleed, she repeatedly took little Isabel to the hospital, but her doctors only prescribe medication to shrink the scar.
‘The doctor was really nonchalant and said “I bet on my life that it is a birthmark, I don’t want to see you for a year”, explains Yvonne Bull, the mother of little Isabel.
But she did not quit. After several visits Isabel was admitted to hospital in London, where doctors discovered that the purple mark is a very rare type of cancer.
Little Isabel made it through six hour operation.
Now Mrs. Bull is considering to take legal actions against the doctors who left Isabel with only one ear (she lost her ear during the operation) and big scar on her face.
