Portland Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer Lawyer

Breast cancer is among the most common and dangerous types of cancer affecting women. Unfortunately, there are typically no symptoms easily detectable by the patient when tumors are small and most easily treatable. Delayed diagnosis or wrong diagnosis of breast cancer is a frequent basis for medical malpractice claims.

Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer Risks

Who Is Liable?

A doctor who failed to diagnose or misdiagnosed breast cancer may be found liable for your injuries if he or she incorrectly evaluated your symptoms or failed to order necessary tests. Mammograms can detect early-stage breast cancer in many cases. Our attorneys work closely with specialists to determine whether a failure to diagnose breast cancer soon enough represented negligence to support a claim for damages.  In some cases, a pathology lab may be liable for a missed or misdiagnosis of cancer. A doctor or medical organization may also be at fault if they incorrectly diagnose a person with breast cancer, when the victim is in fact healthy. A misdiagnosis of HER2 positive breast cancer can lead to months or even years of unnecessary chemotherapy treatments.
