Firm Slams Doctors Responsible for Misdiagnosis of Breast Cancer
A woman who died as a result of her doctor’s failure to properly diagnose her aggressive breast cancer had $4 million worth of settlement monies awarded to her estate. The doctor responsible had twice diagnosed and removed benign tumors from his patient in the early 1990s. In 2001 the woman again visited the same doctor, who diagnosed a new breast lump as a benign tumor with “no sign of malignancy”. Upon getting a second opinion over a year later after noticing that the lump had grown, she was informed that “the cancer had spread”. The woman did not respond to treatment and died less than a year later.
