It is considered medical malpractice if a pathology report was misread delaying cancer treatment. Physicians and medical professionals should be properly trained to read a pathology report. When they do not, and as a result there is a delay in cancer treatment to a patient, the doctor has committed negligence, and this is considered medical malpractice.
Patients expect doctors to properly read pathology reports so they if they suffer from cancer they are diagnosed and are able to receive treatment in a timely manner. When a pathology report is misread this can cause a delay in cancer diagnosis, and therefore delay in treatment. Delay in treatment to a patient who has cancer can be harmful and sometimes a deadly combination.
