A teenager suffering from back pains was diagnosed with cancerous tumours after a fall prompted him to visit the doctors.

Aidan Hogg, 16, began experiencing back pain after he fell off a sledge in February 2021.

The schoolboy from Edinburgh was just 15 when his lower back started aching, and after doing a urine test, doctor’s prescribed antibiotics for a misdiagnosed kidney infection.

But not long after Aidan lost all feeling within his legs, and unable to stand or walk alone – he was rushed to a hospital where MRI tests revealed cancerous tumours on his spinal cord.

Now 11 months on, Aidan is in remission and learning how to walk again.

Aidan said: “We’d had some snow, and I enjoyed myself going out sledging.

“It had been icy and foggy, so I ended up coming off the sledge.

“Not long after, I started getting pains in my lower back so I assumed it was from the fall.

“It didn’t go away so I went to the doctors who gave me antibiotics for a kidney infection, they never really helped, or made much of a difference.”

Aidan’s health took a turn for the worse in March last year, when he lost the ability to walk and all feeling within his legs.
