Scenarios of successful breast cancer lawsuits may include
- where a doctor failed to order follow up testing on a known breast lump
- where a doctor failed to order a biopsy of a breast lump or suspicious result in diagnostic testing
- failure to properly read the mammogram or ultrasound films
Screening patients with no complaints or pain is the best way to detect and treat breast cancer in its earliest stages. This is true because the smallest lump or nodule can only be felt upon touching when it has already grown to one centimeter (about inch). By this time the lump may already contain up to one billion cancer cells. A regular mammogram is therefore the best preventative screening to catch this disease in its infancy stages.
