I fear my potential cancer is being ignored – doctors don't seem to be worried | The Sun
DEAR DEIDRE: I WAS taken to hospital after I collapsed in the street.
A scan revealed that I had suffered a tiny little bleed on the brain, but the doctors treating me didn’t seem to be unduly worried.

I am a 78-year-old man. Another scan also revealed a shadow in my left lung.
This all happened five months ago and it seems as though I have been forgotten about since then.
