Woman with terminal cancer sues GP over alleged negligence

A 37- year old mother of two with terminal cancer has launched a High Court action against a GP claiming alleged negligence over a visit to the doctor after she found a small lump under her arm while in the shower.

Christine Rossiter, Mr Justice Anothony Barr was told, has only months to live after a tumour was found in her breast in 2016 and she has developed secondary cancer including in her brain.

The young mother told the High Court today that she feels like a "ticking time bomb" after a new tumour was found in her brain last year.

Ms Rossiter has sued GP Norma Donlon over a consultation she had with the doctor in 2014.
