6 Month delay in diagnosis of breast cancer – $1.2 Million Settlement
Our client felt a lump in her breast and reported it to her Doctor, She was referred for a mammogram and sonogram which were (correctly) interpreted as negative. The doctor did not follow up with plaintiff to investigate the lump. When it began to grow, plaintiff returned (6 months later) for a mammogram which was suspicious and cancer was diagnosed soon thereafter. Plaintiff underwent a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The Doctor denies that the client reported a lump in the first place. This delay in diagnosis resulted in a $1.2 Million Settlement before the case went to trial.
