Breast Cancer Misdiagnosis Mistakes Are Compensable

Breast cancer is unquestionably one of the most serious forms of cancer in the world, but thanks to growing technology and a body of knowledge, it is often treatable when caught early enough.

According to, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing up-to-date information about breast cancer:

  • Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women.
  • Just under 30 percent of cancers in women are breast cancers.

Failure To Diagnose Breast Cancer In Phoenix And Throughout Arizona

A radiologist, physician or pathologist may fail to diagnose breast cancer by:

  • Failing to order a mammogram for a patient with a suspicious breast lump
  • Wrongly interpreting an imaging study revealing a cancerous mass
  • Failing to interpret tissue samples that may be suggestive of cancerous cells

In order to win a medical malpractice case, it must be demonstrated that a physician failed to diagnose/treat the cancer and that the negligence was a cause of the prognosis being worse/death. This demonstration requires the expertise of an experienced lawyer.
