Physician and Radiologist Malpractice in Delayed Diagnosis of Cancer

In any medical malpractice case involving breast cancer, the key legal question is whether the disease should have and could have been diagnosed earlier. At medical checkups, your doctor should ask you about symptoms and risk factors for breast cancer. Tests to diagnose cancer may include:

  • Physical exams
  • Mammography
  • Breast MRI
  • Breast ultrasound tests
  • Breast biopsy
  • CT or PET scan

If your doctor failed to diagnose your breast cancer at an early stage due to failure to order appropriate tests, test errors or misinterpretation of test results, you may have a case of malpractice. Once a tumor metastasizes, the cancer may spread into the lymph nodes or adjoining tissues, making treatment more difficult.
