    So has anyone had any bad experiences with the people who are supposed to be looking after the health of the public such as our Doctors? Because my Doctor is a disgrace. The man is in his 80s (or 90s) and he is deaf; You have to constantly shout at him and all he ever does is just nod and says 'what!

    His mis-diagnose have ruined a lot of lives like for example; he wrongly diagnosed a fully grown man who was screaming and crying due to pains in his head with just a headache, only for the poor bloke to die the week after: It was a brain tumor and he diagnosed a little girl with a tummy bug only for the poor girl to die from meningitis.

    During one of my appointments where I was coughing my guts, he checked me over and simply said 'Ohh you got a cough' No ****, Sherlock, and when a member of the family complained about getting out of breath far too quickly, he just nodded as if he didn't have a clue.

    Another family member was throwing up for several days and the same doctor told her that it was just a viral infection or gastritis and told to go home and get some rest, but we ended up phoning the ambulance for her and according to the hospital, it was lucky that she had not died. The poor woman was throwing up her own fetuses duo to her bowels exploding and it was nothing to do with any viral infection.

    How many lives is the scumbag going to ruin? The guy has been past his sell by date for many years, he should be sacked on the spot because his corrupt diagnoses are endangering members of the public.

    I would take this up with the practice/hospital he works at formally. They should remove him.

    He shouldn't really be working anymore. You could report him but nothing is likely to be done about it unless others report him too. You should switch doctors or find another practice.

    How many Doctor's have you seen? Are they all from the same GP practice/hospital or different?

    i would probably go to A&E and get it checked out- maybe they can refer you for a biopsy or an xray

    As much as being a doctor is difficult, it sounds as if the guy isn't doing thorough checks with his patients ensuring it's nothing life-threatening, which as it turned out they were life-threatening illnesses. A doctor must always check everything possible to cover their backs so they don't lose their license.

    I'd report the guy straight away to the surgery, he should have lost his license ages ago mis-diagnosing many cases. Or better yet, you could pursue a legal remedy by filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, especially considering he mis-diagnosed your family member and then was rushed to hospital in a terrible state.

    If they can't do it properly, they should just stay at home instead.

    Of course they aren't free. They are funded by your taxes.

    You could try a different practice or ask for a second opinion, see what they say about the lump. If they say the same thing then it probably is just a lympnode and nothing to worry about.

    A longstanding problem is neither an accident nor an emergency. An x-ray would be entirely unhelpful in diagnosing a soft tissue lump, and A&E will not be able to arrange for biopsies to be done there and then. This is a GP --> outpatients problem.

    Most lumps are, from experience, nothing serious.
