If a doctor missed a breast tumor on your mammogram, and as a result there was a delay in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer you do have legal rights to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit against the negligent doctor. In this type of lawsuit, it must be proven that the physician did misread the mammogram film, and due to this error there was in fact a delay in your treatment of breast cancer.
In addition to proving the medical error, it must also be proven that if the film had not been misread, a more favorable outcome to the patient would have resulted.
When a doctor misreads a mammogram, serious, even deadly, consequences can result to the patient. This is considered medical error or negligence and a medical malpractice lawsuit should be pursued.
