A 40-year-old woman was wrongly diagnosed with metastatic cancer and put on chemotherapy treatment emerged on Friday.
According to Philenews , she is suing both the Nicosia General Hospital and the BoC Oncology Centre.
She got the results four months ago and was informed that she had metastatic cancer and was given six months to live, the report said.
She even underwent a course of chemotherapy but a re-testing of the biopsy sample showed it belonging to another patient who probably is still unaware he/she has cancer.
The shocking case is recorded in a letter sent from the lawyer of the complainant to both medical institutions on Wednesday.
Lawyer Theodoulos Papavasiliou is demanding answers to all questions raised after the complainant requested and obtained a scientific DNA test of that biopsy showing her alleged metastatic cancer.
A Bank of Cyprus Oncology Centre insider told Philenews this is a serious complaint which is being investigated thoroughly. No comment was received from the Nicosia General Hospital.
