Breast cancer late diagnosis as a result of negligent medical care

Posted on January 20, 2015 2:28 pm under Medical Malpractice

Breast cancer, or the growth and development of cancer cells in the breast tissues, is an invasive and life-threatening medical condition that affects approximately 1 in 8 American women over the course of her lifetime. Common signs and symptoms of breast cancer are breast lumps, abnormalities in the nipple, and pain, redness and swelling on any of the breast’s skin.

Weighing a woman’s risk of breast cancer, combined with available tests and procedures that detect cancer in the breast, make it possible for medical professionals to diagnose breast cancer in a timely fashion. However, there are times when a medical professional is careless enough not to proceed with the necessary steps to accurately diagnosing breast cancer, resulting in late medical intervention and slimmer chances of recovery.

Failure to diagnose breast cancer in a timely manner is sometimes the result of negligent medical care. To learn if you can file a lawsuit after a delayed breast cancer diagnosis in Wisconsin, speak with an attorney at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling (414) 271-0900 today.
