Breast Cancer Misdiagnosis
A Compassionate Attorney Handling Failure To Diagnose Breast Cancer Claims
Mammography uses low-energy X-rays to examine a breast. So-called breast health clinics and medical imaging groups tout their cutting-edge technology on detecting cancer. Over time, medical professionals have determined this diagnostic and screening tool to be the least effective in the detection of breast cancer. Some consider it no longer effective.
Mammogram results from these facilities often result in the reporting of false negatives that delay the diagnosis and put the health of a patient at risk. Conversely, false positives lead to not only anxiety and fear, but also unnecessary surgeries.
To make matters worse, staff members often fail to follow up on mammography results, a life-changing oversight if a test detected breast cancer. Some women may interpret no news as good news.
Be Your Own Proactive Advocate
If you have gone in for a screening, you need to be proactive in getting the results. Assumptions and delays only limit your options and your life expectancy if you are diagnosed with breast cancer.
Protect your health by getting the answers you need. Assert your legal rights by having a documented copy of the findings.
