Phoenix Breast Cancer Attorneys
Breast cancer is a major cause of death among women. Studies show that the best chance for survival comes with early detection. While some controversy exists about the most efficient time to have mammograms, there is no question that they are an important screening tool which can identify breast cancer at an early stage.
If an abnormality appears on a mammogram or if the patient detects a lump in her breast, the doctor will assess the situation and determine if more testing is necessary. Often the next step is for the doctor to order a biopsy. A biopsy can be performed in a number of ways, each of which is designed to get cells from the area in question to determine if cancer is present or not. If you have biopsy question, contact our law office today.
Incorrect Breast Cancer Treatment
Sometimes mammograms are misinterpreted. Sometimes the doctor incorrectly concludes that there is no problem and that further testing is not required. Sometimes the biopsy is not performed correctly or is not correctly interpreted. We have seen and represented patients in many cases where one or more of these mistakes have occurred. If you believe that you or a family member was injured or died due to a failure to properly assess a possible breast cancer, you should have your case evaluated by an experienced attorney.
