"Grocery tumour"?

As the doctor started the exam, he patted her husband’s stomach and called it a “grocery tumor”.
 'Obesity' is a slim person wearing a fat suit that is disease.

I think the case can rest on that one.


Stepping out of the role of medical professional that way, to enter into this kind of over familiarity, when someone is in a vulnerable position-laying down- is not appropriate: boundaries.

I can't think of an equivalent, I suppose it's like this doctor suddenly patting the concave tummy of a slim person saying something like "famine".

Uncalled for.
