Can I sue a doctor for failing to order tests to diagnose breast cancer?

Yes, you can sue a doctor for failing to order tests to diagnose breast cancer.  A doctor is should be trained for recognizing the signs and symptoms of breast cancer. When a doctor fails to order tests, and the woman patient has presented to her physician the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, this can be considered negligence, and the patient may be able to file a Michigan medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor.

The early detection of breast cancer, such as ordering tests to diagnose the condition, is essential for necessary treatment to battle this cruel disease. The longer it takes for a patient to be diagnosed, or for the cancer to be detected, the chances of battling the disease can become much more difficult. Therefore, when a doctor fails to order tests to diagnose breast cancer or early detection does not happen, the patient’s outcome often times is not as favorable and is the result of the doctor’s error.
