Breast cancer claims – unnecessary surgery.

Breast cancer is generally diagnosed by a combination of tests known as the ‘triple test’.

The three test are:

We work on a 'No Win-No Fee' basis so no need to worry about paying our fee. You only pay us if we win you a payout.

  • clinical examination.
  • mammogram or ultrasound scan.
  • biopsy.

For those having the tests breast cancer should only be diagnosed if all three suggest that a growth is cancer.

Wrong diagnosis can happen when mistakes are made when analysing a biopsy, or when a doctor makes the assumption that the patient has cancer despite of one of the tests coming back negative.

While it is a relief to discover that mistakes were made and you don't have cancer, wrong diagnosis can lead to other problems such as:

  • Stress and anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • An unnecessary surgical procedure such as lymph removal or mastectomy.
  • Removal of too much breast tissue causing deformity to the breast.

If you underwent an unnecessary surgical procedure because of a cancer misdiagnosis, our clinical negligence specialists can make a claim for compensation on your behalf.

Misdiagnosis of breast cancer.

A more serious issue of misdiagnosis is being given the all clear and told you do not have breast cancer when in fact you do.

While cancer diagnosis and treatment has vastly improved in the last 20 years, mistakes can and do happen.

Symptoms can be missed and mistakes made which could mean the opportunity to treat the cancer is greatly reduced or in some cases even lost.

Claim example:

Mrs A was awarded £40,000 for misdiagnosis and treatment of her breast cancer.

It was shown that the 9 month delay in her breast cancer being diagnosed led to her having to undergo a mastectomy rather than a lumpectomy. Also she would not have had to undergo chemotherapy had she been diagnosed at an earlier date.

Claiming compensation.

When making a claim the amount of compensation you could receive depends on what the outcome would have been if an earlier diagnosis had been made.

In order to be successful it is necessary to prove that the negligent diagnosis was the primary cause for the potentially unfavourable outcome.

Our solicitors are here to win your claim, we can investigate the circumstances of your diagnosis and treatment to provide the evidence needed to get you the payout you deserve.
