Breast Cancer

Many families will be affected by breast cancer. Many breast cancer patients have an excellent outcomes – including full recovery – but such an outcome is often dependent on an early and accurate diagnosis. However, breast cancer that goes undetected or misdiagnosed until it advances to a later stage is much more likely to recur or result in death.

Failure to diagnose breast cancer does not automatically constitute medical malpractice. However when a doctor's negligence does constitute malpractice and results in serious injury or death, the family is entitled to compensation.
