The images revealed that she had a tumour in one of her lungs.
The next day a more thorough examination was carried out, after which Ingrid was informed of some new findings.
The “tumour” in the pictures was actually a button from the hospital gown worn by the woman at the time of her x-ray.
“It was horrible and terrible that they could have missed such a thing,” Ingrid said to the Allehanda newspaper.
According to hospital director Inger Bergström, the hospital plans to investigate the incident.
