The story happened when Ventura, a former teacher, widow and mother of two daughters, was on the bus line 64 in Barcelona after visiting the Museum of Pedralbes and saw a woman close to her seat keeping on looking at her eyes while speaking to her.

Before they were about to get off, the woman approached her and asked to speak separately.
"She apologized for what she was going to say, and told me I had to make some specific check ups". "She took a paper and wrote me the two type of analysis i had to do" Ventura herself explained to the reporter Hilario Pino.

I've never heard anything like this: basically the mysterious woman was staring at her eyes for some time, then she gave to her some piece of paper in which there was written what tests she had to do in order to save her life: there was also written "you're still in time: people often come to doctors when it's too late".
The doctor also explained that she spotted it because "i had two similar cases in the past, but in this case the symptoms were indicating that the disease wasn't at some too advanced stage".
If we think about all the mistakes that still are being made despite the super-advanced technologies available, and that this doctor just needed to "take a look" in order to make some correct diagnosis, then it will be easy to realize that there's something extraordinary in this doctor's skills.
A human life has been saved in some almost incredible way, just because of some careful look from some incredibly trained doctor

Another detail: in the paper were indicated two values to check: growth hormone and somatomedin - c:
a month after the encounter, the woman had to do some check-up, and asked the doctors to perform a check on the two values: well, the two values were the only ones which returned anomalous results: basically, they wouldn't find it if it wasn't just because of those checks.
When Montserrat asked what she had seen in her, she responded that she had "swollen hands", then she asked if he "her shoes were hurting her feet" and indicated that "her lips were swollen.

, a real life Doctor House, cool. Always nice to read about these stories. Some Doctors are just that good. Thanks for sharing

Amazing what some can tell from eyes. If this story is true, i would say there are plenty of similar cases in the world, and its history.

It is truly heartwarming to read a story of hope on here, rather than the usual doom and gloom.

And make's you think, how many more of these "miracles" go on without anyone but the families ever knowing about them.

Truly amazing, thanks for bringing this to the light.

I would suspect most doctors, that may be empathic with people, would want that to be kept a secret.

Shame all doctors, cannot use this skill.

That lady was so lucky some might say she was in the right place at the right time

This is a great story but there is nothing supernatural here. Think about it. The woman had pituitary cancer. The woman doctor that alerted her was an endocrinologist --- a doctor who specializes in glandualr diseases (the pituitary is a hormone producing gland).

Glandular diseases, especially those involving the pituitary, casue subtle changes to the physical appearance. My best friend's late father had the exact same thing happen. He had a pituitary disorder that had gone undiagnosed his entire life. Late in his life he happened to meet a doctor who was familiar with the disorder and alerted him. They tested and sure enough...

No gaurdian angles here I'm afraid. At least not in the classic sense.

Yeah, similar experience here. My ex-wife had a thyroid problem spotted by a locum when her regular doctor was out of town. Very subtle signs but he was observant enough to notice. It's just what good doctors do.

I worked for a company that used a eye test as a screening method for drug use.

When they started using this prescreening test for drug use they found over 5 employees company wide that had brain tumors out of about 9000 employees.

The test is called the "rapid eye test"

Eye abnormalities caused by brain tumors.

* pupils different sizes
* uncontrollable movements

The company that did the test trained there people on what to look for to identify drugs and medical problems that caused abnormal eye response
