Firm Wins Settlement for Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer
Settlement: $3.1 Million
The doctors and medical facilities responsible for failing to diagnose a woman's malignant breast cancer, allowing it to spread throughout her body, were forced to pay more than $3 million in damages. The woman, who consulted her doctors after discovering a breast mass, was not given the adequate testing (such as mammogram, biopsy, CT scan, MRI etc), and as such failed to recognize the urgency of her condition. As a result, the woman's breast cancer spread, leading to severe pain and suffering, the need for chemotherapy and other treatment including a mastectomy and the removal of lymph nodes, depression and other health issues.
