Female doctor having sex with cancer patient loses licence


Is sex truly an animal thing? Well, the story of a medical doctor, Theepa Sundaralingam, may just be confirming that.

According to reports, she has just been stripped of her medical credentials after being caught having an affair with a male cancer patient.

The 37-year-old began flirting with the man just one day after diagnosing him with cancer. She gave him her personal phone number and Instagram handle. They then followed each other and she began sending him flirty messages. 

From sexting the man, the oncologist, from Toronto, Canada, took the relationship to the next level by staying with him during treatment for his illness and having sex in his hospital bed.

An online account adds:

She, however, told him to keep the relationship secret as she was concerned the college would become aware of their sexual and inappropriate relationship.

But the patient, who will not be named, was devastated when Sundaralingam ended the affair and explained to him that she was in love with a colleague.

The man, who cannot be named, said:

It’s difficult for me to talk to anybody about it because the reality is that I’m a male so for me to say, ‘Hey, I dated my oncologist,’ it wouldn’t be a surprise for someone to say ‘Cool.’ But that’s not cool.

‘That’s not the case because I feel abused, and it’s very difficult as a male to come out and say that about a female. It’s usually the other way around.

I was physically emaciated and emotionally exposed and the loss of a critical relationship defeated me. What compounded this toll was her refusal to continue providing medical care at the same time.

At the time, I was unable to see the ramifications of dating my treating oncologist. I couldn’t see how vulnerable I was and how much power she had over me.
