It was recently reported that a young woman from the UK has died just months after doctors mistook her cancer for a pregnancy. 22-year-old Demi Wright allegedly visited the doctors several months ago about a pain that she was experiencing in her side, and after a very surface examination with a few tests, Demi was told that she was pregnant.

Demi even had a history of cancer concerns, as she suffered from a benign tumor in her liver as a child, and had regular check-ups as she grew up.

“It was strange because she had been using the contraceptive pill and there were no other signs of her being pregnant. I went to an ultrasound with her and they were looking to see what was happening,” her father told Metro UK.

After an ultrasound, no baby was found, but after extensive testing, it was revealed that the tumor in her liver had become cancerous.

Demi’s boyfriend, Mitch Gregory, says he feels that the family has been “robbed.”

“It needs to be stressed how much courage she had. She’s our inspiration now,” he said.

This case may be strange, but it is sadly common. Too much faith is placed on fallible tests that many times render false positive or negative results, and doctors are often so overworked and fearful of lawsuits that they are hesitant to get extremely involved in difficult cases that can’t be solved overnight with a quick prescription. The modern medical establishment is entirely incompetent, despite its many discoveries and innovations over the years.
