For women, perhaps no cancer diagnosis is feared like that of breast cancer. Despite recent advances in treatment, the diagnosis of breast cancer still raises the fears of disfigurement, side-effects from treatment, inability to enjoy life, and the possibility of death.
With breast cancer, as with many other types of cancer, the earlier a diagnosis is received, the greater the likelihood of successful treatment and a good outcome. That's why it's especially painful for patients to learn not only that they have breast cancer, but that it was detected later than it should have been.
Women are taught to be vigilant, to know their bodies, to get regular screenings. For a doctor or other medical professional to fail to identify cancer when a woman has done everything in her power to protect her health feels like a betrayal. While breast cancer in men is not nearly as common as it is in women, it does occur, and sometimes goes undiagnosed for too long, with tragic results.
Breast cancer affects not just the patient, but the whole family. At Huegli Fraser PC, the clients we see who were injured by a doctor's failure to diagnose their breast cancer are always concerned with the effect of their illness on their families. We are committed to doing everything possible to help our clients recover for the failure to diagnose their illness, so that they can provide for themselves and their families.
