A 48-year-old married mother of two children was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer one year after a radiologist who reviewed her breast ultrasound reported the study as normal and unchanged from earlier breast imaging. When a lump was discovered one year after the ultrasound, it was biopsied and found to be malignant. Review of the earlier ultrasound revealed a suspicious lesion, which warranted biopsy. Had that been done, it was argued that her cancer would have been diagnosed at an earlier stage, with a better chance of cure. Daniel M. Hodes of Hodes Milman, LLP represented the plaintiff in a cancer misdiagnosis case; the matter resolved for the sum of $750,000.
