Yes, you can file a breast cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit for a misread mammogram. Mammograms are used to both pre-screen for cancer and to make a diagnosis. When a radiologist misreads a mammogram, the consequences can be devastating as early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer is the best way to combat this disease. Therefore when a mammogram is misread and patient is not timely diagnosed with breast cancer, medical negligence has taken place and the patient may file a lawsuit.
