Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women, with 200,000 women being diagnosed with the condition every year and some 40,000 women dying from breast cancer each year. Despite the technological and scientific advances in treating and diagnosing breast cancer, preventable medical errors continue to occur more often than we would like.
Breast cancer can be challenging to diagnose, and it is even more complicated and challenging to treat, with treatment options including radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, surgery and medication. The earlier the diagnosis, the better the odds of recovery. Unfortunately, breast cancer can be misdiagnosed.
While early diagnosis is essential in battling the disease, doctors sometimes do fail to properly diagnose the problem. This medical error can result in more aggressive treatment being required. Sometimes the misdiagnosis can even result in death. If you or a loved one has been a victim of misdiagnosed breast cancer, you need to consult with an attorney for medical negligence.
