My wife was walking with a limp and I took her to the general physician (GP). They gave her pain killers, and after several visits her walking got worse. They sent her for x-ray, and the results according to the hospital were mild degenerative of bone, nothing to worry about. The GP started treatment for arthritis and after 3 weeks she was of her feet. I forced house call by GP and she said fluid in the knee and arthritis, but when she was x-rayed again it was bone cancer, tumor in the back of the knee, and blood clot. She died 6 weeks later because of failure to detect on first x-ray. She was stage 4. The first x-ray was looked at by another specialist, and there was no doubt that the tumor and cancer stage 4 was there.
