    they won't try to remove the cancer

    Procedure or Surgery

    the doctor said that there is no use in removing the cancer because it won't cure it.. even tho there is a chance of extending her life.

    malpractice care

    Other Care

    I belive my grandmother was not treated with the care that she deserved. She complained of pain in the site of the cancer and until now it was never found or even looked for and now that they found it she only has 3 to 6 months left. Her mom and dad both died from different type's of cancer and she was never even checked out until now.
