Doctors Wrongly Diagnose Woman With Cancer, Cut Off Her Leg

A 72-year-old woman was wrongly diagnosed with cancer, but didn’t find out until after she had her leg amputated, London’s Daily Mail reported.

Doctors told Doreen Nicholls she had a rare form of cancer and that she would die without the amputation surgery.

However, after Nicholls had the leg removed, tests revealed she was cancer-free.

Birmingham’s Royal Orthopedic Hospital in the U.K. agreed to pay Nicholls a “substantial six-figure sum,” according to Nicholls’ attorney.

“I shall never forgive the hospital for what they’ve done to me,” Nicholls told the newspaper.
