Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer

Dedicated Advocacy from Our New York Breast Cancer Lawyers

Like any type of cancer, breast cancer is treated most effectively when it is detected early after risk factors and warning signs are read properly. When those signs are not interpreted correctly, however, the misdiagnosis of breast cancer can lead to the continued growth of cancer in the body.

At the law firm of Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, our experienced New York breast cancer attorneys have a strong track record holding doctors and other medical professionals accountable for the misdiagnosis of breast cancer. We understand the obligations that medical professionals have in the diagnosis and treatment of breath cancer and can help our clients pursue compensation for any financial and physical issues that have come as a result of that misdiagnosis.

If you or your family has been affected by a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of breast cancer, our firm can help you seek closure. Contact us at (888) 260-0473 today.

Missing the Signs of Breast Cancer

Medical professionals, including radiologists, oncologists, and other physicians, are supposed to be able to read mammograms and other tests in order to screen for breast cancer. If one of these signs if not recognized or is not properly treated when it is seen, it can result in a significant setback for patients.

Common early signs of breast cancer include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Suspicious lumps
  • Nipple discharges

Another way in which breast cancer can go undetected is through misread mammograms. If the results of a mammogram are unclear or ambiguous, the physician must follow up on the results and seek further information.
