Cancer diagnosed via email

27th August 2008

A US baby has been diagnosed with cancer after a woman in the UK spotted "early warning signs" during an internet email photo exchange.

The woman, who lives in Manchester, saw that in a photo of the baby there was a shadow behind one of her eyes. The toddler was diagnosed with a type of fast-growing cancer - Retinoblastoma - and has had an operation and chemotherapy treatment.
