Sadly, hundreds of thousands of women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually. Out of those, tens of thousands lose their lives to this disease.In the majority of breast cancer cases, medical malpractice never occurs. In other cases, a doctor may fail to diagnose a tumor for a month or so, but that lost month does not make a significant difference in the outcome.In some cases, however, failure to diagnose and treat breast cancer on time has tragic consequences. Patients may have to undergo far more invasive, painful and expensive courses of treatment than they would otherwise have needed.

Was Medical Negligence the Cause of Your New Jersey Breast Cancer Misdiagnosis?
Medical malpractice can run the gamut in cancer-related cases, but here are three common examples:
- Radiology errors — Surprisingly, more radiologists are sued in connection with breast cancer misdiagnosis than are any other type of medical professionals. Careless or poorly trained radiologists can easily fail to notice or fail to correctly interpret abnormalities on MRIs, ultrasounds or mammograms.
- Physician errors — Doctors may receive accurate imaging results but fail to act upon them. Physicians may also fail to incorporate mammogram results and other test results into the overall clinical picture.
- Poor follow-up — If a test comes back abnormal, doctors have the responsibility to order appropriate follow-up tests. These may include additional diagnostic mammograms, biopsies, spot views or ultrasounds.
