The doctor on duty diagnosed the problem as inflammation. But after three weeks of unalleviated irritation, the patient was instructed to seek further treatment at a hospital.
It was unclear if the man would have been able to avoid amputation had the cancer been detected earlier, but the case was referred to Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare, which reviews reports of injuries and malpractice in the country’s heath care system. ( foxnews )
