Not to be confused with Dr Khan (1999 character)
Dr Khan operated on Diane Sugden when she was accidentally stabbed by her business partner Chas Dingle in November 2015. After the operation Dr Khan informed Diane that during the surgery the surgeons found a mass in her stomach, they took a biopsy and it's highly likely it's cancer. The following day Dr Khan confirmed Diane had a highly aggressive form of cancer and would urgently need a further operation as well a chemotherapy. He later confirmed that they had managed to remove all the cancer.
