Grandmother 55 Died After GP Thought Cervical Cancer was Menopause

In February 2008 Cheryl Humpage visited her GP with nausea fever and unusual bleeding.
She was prescribed HRT by her GP Dr Martin Crowther of St Peter’s Surgery in Whitehall when he advised that her symptoms were related to menopause.
Her symptoms persisted despite re-examination on a further three occasions by Dr Crowther and in March 2009 Cheryl was diagnosed with cervical cancer and was referred to a specialist at Walsall Manor Hospital.
Cheryl died in July 2010 as her cancerous tumours had spread even though she underwent an aggressive course of chemotherapy.
Her husband Peter 56 pursued a medical negligence claim against Dr Crowther and received a five figure compensation pay out from the GP’s insurers.
Dr Crowther apologised earlier in the week for the failure of detecting her cancer and offered his apologies.
Mr Humpage’s solicitor felt that her suffering would have been reduced if the cancer was detected earlier.
