Breast Cancer Misdiagnosis

While performing a breast self-exam, you notice something different. You schedule an appointment with your doctor, who tells misdiagnoses it as a benign cyst, or even insists that nothing is wrong at all. Months later you are diagnosed with breast cancer, which by this time has advanced dramatically. What was once a contained and relatively treatable tumor has now become a medical nightmare. Unfortunately, this scenario happens all the time, and it is called medical malpractice. If it has happened to you or a loved one, contact a Pittsburgh medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.

Breast cancer is tragically easy to misdiagnose. A doctor may mistake it for anything from a benign cyst to an abscess, a skin disorder to the natural changes that occur during your menstrual cycle. That said, sometimes breast cancer is misdiagnosed not through an honest mistake, but through the carelessness of a doctor. Failure to recommend a mammogram, or the all-too-common failure to take a complaint seriously, can be harmful at best and fatal at worst.

If you or a loved one were the victim of breast cancer misdiagnosis through medical negligence, you have the right to hold the guilty parties accountable with a medical malpractice lawsuit. The financial compensation you receive could help lessen the stress of steep medical bills or other expenses. In addition, the suit sends a message to the hospital to take a good look at their practices and could save future families from suffering the same tragedy.
