Pursuing Malpractice Claims for Delayed Diagnosis

Early detection of breast cancer is critical. If there are reasons to believe that someone may have breast cancer, and the doctor treating the patient does not order the right tests or interpret the results properly, the consequences can be extremely harmful.

At the Providence law firm of DeLuca & Weizenbaum, our Rhode Island breast cancer misdiagnosis attorneys pursue medical malpractice claims on behalf of cancer patients and their families. To schedule a free consultation with a seasoned trial lawyer, contact us today.

Should Your Doctor Have Ordered a Mammogram Earlier?

There are several major circumstances in which a responsible doctor, following the standards of his or profession, ought to recommend that a woman undergo a mammogram to detect any potential for breast cancer. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • An annual mammogram is recommended due to the patient's age.
  • The patient or doctor has detected a lump or growth in the breast.
  • The patient is at a high risk due to a family or personal history of breast cancer.

If it appears, based on the results of a mammogram, that the patient has a potentially cancerous growth, the doctor should follow up by ordering an ultrasound and/or biopsy and should offer additional treatment if the diagnosis is confirmed.

Seeking Compensation for Harm Done by Untreated Breast Cancer

A doctor's failure to diagnose breast cancer can cause the cancer to grow to the point where it is more difficult to successfully treat. Untreated cancer can metastasize, spreading to other organs of the body and severely damaging the patient's chances of making a full recovery.

If you've been denied critical treatment or lost a loved one because of a doctor's misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of breast cancer, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss whether you have a medical malpractice claim. You will not pay any fees unless we help you win your case.
