Breast Biopsy Surgery

Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients like you who have suffered injuries due to medical mistakes made by doctors, nurses, and hospitals. Many of these injuries are very serious, often requiring extensive medical treatment and the need for additional surgeries. When a medical error causes a death, it can give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.

There are risks involved in every medical procedure and not all poor results are due to medical malpractice. A lawsuit can only be filed when there is a medical error or mistake that caused your injury.

Breast Biopsy Procedure

A breast biopsy is a procedure in which part or all of a suspicious breast growth is removed and examined, usually for the presence of cancer. The growth sample is suctioned out through a needle or cut out using a surgical procedure. The sample is then examined and evaluated under a microscope by a pathologist to identify non-cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant) tissue.

Words used to refer to the abnormal area or growth before and after diagnosis may include lump, mass, lesion, and tumor.

The basic aim of a breast biopsy is to determine whether or not a worrisome lump is cancer and, if it is cancer, what type it is. When no cancer is detected, the diagnosis of a benign or harmless lump is reassuring.

Risks of Breast Biopsy Procedures

The most common risks of a Breast Biopsy procedure are:

  • Infection and/or blood clot
  • Failure to obtain accurate diagnosis
  • Disfiguring scar
  • Failure to locate and remove abnormality

Although these are common risks, they may also be the result of medical negligence. Our experience medical malpractice lawyers will review your medical chart and determine whether your injury was the result of negligent treatment or just a normal risk or complication of your procedure.
