Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer

Medical Malpractice Lawyers in New York

Cancer is one of the most tragic diseases, often causing long-term challenges for an individual and their supportive family. While it will depend on the severity, the sooner breast cancer is diagnosed, the more successful treatment typically is. Sadly, more than 12% of cancer cases are initially misdiagnosed according to statistics. This means that many once treatable cancers can develop into more difficult or terminal cancers due to medical malpractice.

The Dangers of Failing to Diagnose Cancer

When a cancer diagnose is delayed, it can lead to increased medical bills, disfigurement due to late treatment, additional health complications, and even wrongful death.

Failure to initially diagnose cancer can be caused by:

  • Lack of proper diagnostic testing when required
  • Misinterpretation of test results
  • Incorrectly performed procedure
  • Failure to recognize a tumor
  • Defective testing equipment or technology
  • Misread X-rays due to negligence

A medical professional is expected to exercise a certain level of patient care. If their failure to diagnose breast cancer violated their responsibilities to a patient, they could be held liable for related damages. Determining this liability can be difficult, as it must be proven that the medical professional failed to provide reasonable and expected care. Our team can work with you to develop a strong claim that demonstrates negligence on the part of your doctor or physician.
