Doctors Misdiagnose Woman’s Stage-Four Lung Cancer As Asthma Because She ‘Looked Healthy’

A British woman who was recently diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer wrote in a now-viral Facebook post this week that doctors repeatedly “brushed off” her cancer because she “looked healthy,” and instead, diagnosed her with asthma.

Vicky Veness, a 30-year-old personal trainer and non-smoker, wrote the post on Aug. 12, and has since garnered 1.8 thousand Facebook reactions and more than 600 shares.

“This photo was taken a few hours before I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer,” the post reads. “I’m 30 years old, a personal trainer, runner, non smoker and healthy eater. When you have cancer you won’t necessarily look ill on the outside. The symptoms might be much more subtle and only show themselves occasionally.” 

“Unfortunately my symptoms were brushed off as asthma by many general practitioners,” the post continues. “The moral of the story is this, if you feel unwell for whatever reason, it doesn’t matter how silly
