Were you misdiagnosed?
Sadly delay in treatment, misdiagnosis and mismanagement of breast cancer is one of the most common claims we deal with. In part this is due to the sheer numbers involved of women suffering from breast cancer: almost 10% of all women in the UK.
Breast cancer must be diagnosed early and treatment to begin right away to increase the likelihood of a positive outcome. Delays in treatment caused by misdiagnosis bring all manner of unforeseen problems and costs, and not forgetting the emotional suffering that you and your loved ones have to deal with when your life expectancy has been affected by negligence.
- Recognise the symptoms of breast cancer
- Refer you to a specialist
- Perform a biopsy
- Refer you for CT/MRI scans
- Correctly interpret and diagnose results
