32 LB CYST! 150 150 Lauren Ellerman

I subscribe to a few blogs myself and this post caught my eye this morning:
Doctor misses 32 lb. cyst.

Why and how could he miss that?

Apparently he said she was overweight.

Could they remove it? YES – along with her ovaries, womb and fallopian tubes. And the physician is still practicing, although in New Zealand where he lives, no one will know his name or about his mistake. While I see that would be helpful for his practice, how is that helpful for his other patients?

I like to know when I am going to a doctor that has been in trouble before…. or even better, one who has no Dept. of Health complaints.
