Louise, a British woman 25 years of age began encountering severe pains in her lower belly. When she observed unusual bleeding between periods, her husband urged her to go to the doctor.


Louise took a pregnancy test before her appointment to be sure, but it turned out negative. When she was with the doctor, she was again asked to take another pregnancy test, but then again it came out negative.




 

Her symptoms got worse. She had back pain, frequent urination and loss of appetite. Louise took another pregnancy test that returned negative. Doctors were confused and shocked. They kept having Louise take pregnancy tests as they attempted to discover what brought on her bloating and pain. One of the doctors stated, "There’s certainly something in there." In the end, the doctors had Louise take seven pregnancy tests all in all. Louise was persuaded her signs had nothing to do with pregnancy. She was diligent, determined, and continued seeing doctors for answers.

At last, an ultrasound distinguished that it was a benign cyst. At that point, a biopsy exposed the truth. Louise had a grade two immature teratoma, an uncommon ovarian tumor that took up her whole stomach and squeezed against her organs.  These uncommon tumor cells are typically analyzed in teenagers and women in their mid-twenties. Louise had the 20-centimeter tumor taken out as well as her ovary and fallopian tube. She said, “I was in the hospital for five days to have three months off work to recover from the invasive surgery.” Gratefully, the procedure that took for four-hours was successful.

The Director of the Ovarian Cancer Action research center, Professor Hani Gabra says, "The symptoms of bloating or a lump in the stomach could absolutely be mistaken for pregnancy but they could also be a tumor, or many other things. So it stands to reason that after one or two pregnancy tests you would then need to be tested for anything else." Louise's experience gives us a lesson.  When you feel something is wrong, you should be determined and persistent to know the cause.


This wasn't the last time doctors had mistaken cancer for pregnancy. Colchester Gazette reported a 22-year-old British woman who just died last 2016 after doctors mistook her terminal cancer for pregnancy.
