A mother of three underwent a mammogram screening for a lump in her breast, It was a screening mammogram and not a diagnostic mammogram. In subsequent visits, she received an ultrasound that was read as normal, when in fact it was not, and was told to return in six months. After visits to multiple doctors, the woman was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and rehabilitation. After a year, she died due to three cancerous lesions which had metastasized from the primary breast site into her brain, lungs and leg. Had the original doctors performed the right procedures, the cancer would have been discovered earlier, and her life would have been spared.
