Doctor diagnosed fake cancers to children

The goal was to convince parents to pay for treatments.

Mina Chowdhury, 44, worked as a pediatrician at a hospital in Scotland, where she convinced several parents that their children suffered from different types of fake cancers.

The doctor claimed that public facilities would take a long time and this could worsen the health of the minors. Therefore, it would be ideal to perform tests such as echocardiograms and blood tests at a private healthcare clinic, in Glasgow.

The clinic run by Mina was going through a financial crisis, which is why the pediatrician acted dishonestly.

After the local Medical Order meeting, however, no sanctions were imposed on the doctor.
