Patient Wins in Medical Neglect Case

A patient filed a medical malpractice case against her OB/GYN physician for neglect in diagnosing her of cancer. The patient complained of a lump in her breast to her physician who then failed to diagnose the lump in a timely matter for breast cancer. Not until after the woman became pregnant did her OB/GYN take a mammogram and ultrasound to determine the lump was in fact breast cancer.
