Common Breast Cancer Misdiagnosis Errors
One of the worst parts about breast cancer misdiagnosis is that many forms of breast cancer are very treatable. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 3.8 million breast cancer survivors are in the United States. Among the reasons for this statistic are the proper diagnosis and subsequent treatment of breast cancer. Early detection is also part of a higher survival rate.
Some of the most common errors made in diagnosing breast cancer include:
- Failure to properly read the radiology report and associated diagnostic assessments
- Failure to properly test those most at-risk of developing breast cancer
- Misdiagnosis of another form of cancer when breast cancer is the true culprit
- Failure to follow up suspicious X-ray with a biopsy or deeper diagnostic
- Omission of pertinent information in medical files that might suggest a predisposition
- to breast cancer development
These are just a few of the ways that a breast cancer misdiagnosis can derail necessary treatment that could ultimately result in lives saved down the road.
