My mum had a chest X-ray which showed something suspicious so was called back for further tests, CT scan, lung function test, blood tests and bronchoscopy, when we went for results consultants words were "well you might have lung cancer or you might have TB, if it's cancer there's nothing I can do so I'll treat you for TB", I said surely if there's a chance of cancer we need further tests to confirm, he said lung function wasn't good they won't do the test. He gave her a prescription for TB Drugs and sent us away. How can he say that, we are devastated and seeking second opinion, we came away not knowing if my mum has lung cancer a deadly disease or TB a contagious illness! People like him should not be able to practice, we will not be returning to Shameside to see that prat again!!
