Failure to diagnose Cancer

Breast cancer is one of the most feared diseases among women, with good cause. The American Cancer Society estimates that nearly 270,000 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed among women last year, and that more than 40,000 women died of breast cancer. The good news is that, thanks to modern medicine, the survival rate among women with breast cancer is increasing every year. Early diagnosis is critical to success.

Medical malpractice attorney Wes Faulkner has seen many cases of failure to diagnose breast cancer at his Louisville, Kentucky practice. A mammogram is the best tool for breast cancer detection, but, if a doctor fails to properly interpret the results, the outcome can be tragic.

Breast calcification can be an early sign of breast cancer. Breast calcification is an accumulation of calcium deposits in breast tissue. While these deposits are not harmful in themselves, a specific type of breast calcification typically occurs in areas of abnormal cell growth caused by cancer, and can be detected by a mammogram. According to an article by WAVE 3 TV in Louisville, Kentucky, breast calcification detection is used to diagnose nearly half the cases of breast cancer.

If you or someone you know suffered because a doctor failed to detect breast calcification or other signs of breast cancer in a mammogram, contact Louisville, Kentucky attorney Wes Faulkner. It may be possible to receive financial compensation from the responsible parties to help with the medical and emotional costs of dealing with the situation.
