Man (20) settles €6m action over delay in diagnosing brain tumour (via Irish Times)

The case against the HSE claimed 14-year-old only received tumour diagnosis after obtaining private MRI scan

A 20-year-old man who sued over a five-month delay in diagnosing his brain tumour has settled his High Court action for more than €6 million.

During the five months, his mother “besieged” Cork University Hospital (CUH) for help for her then 14-year-old son, the High Court heard on Wednesday.

The man, who cannot be named by order of the court, was first referred to the hospital by his GP after he complained of fatigue, migraine and difficulties concentrating. He also complained his left hand was “useless” and would not work.
