The leading medical malpractice suit that is brought before Florida courts is the failure of doctors to diagnosis breast cancer in women. New statistics show that 10% of all women in the US will have breast cancer at some point in their lifetime.
The American Cancer Society continues its campaign to get women to get tested every year with mammograms. However, the number of doctors not catching this horrible disease is on the rise, along with the number of medical malpractice suits dealing with breast cancer.
Doctors are failing to perform routine breast exams, which can find lumps at early stages in the disease. They are also not insisting that women get their yearly mammograms. Even when such steps are taken, many doctors are misreading the results, and discarding common symptoms as normal.
