Woman Files Medical Malpractice Lawsuit after Cancer went Undiagnosed

A woman claims a doctor and a hospital failed to properly interpret the results of a biopsied piece of vaginal tissue that turned out to be malignant. The medical malpractice lawsuit was filed after the doctors failed to diagnose her with cancer. Doctors first removed the vaginal tissue samples from her and performed a biopsy. The results then were sent to a specialist who failed to recognize that the biopsy and tissue samples showed presence of cancer. The cancer remained untreated for “a substantial period of time” which caused the victim to sustain severe injuries. The woman claims that the medical error caused her to lose wages; experienced pain, suffering, disability, loss of a normal life, disfigurement, an increased risk of future injuries and diminished her life expectancy. The medical malpractice lawsuit stated that if the cancer were treated sooner then she would have incurred less medical expenses. The lawsuit seeks a judgment of more than $150,000 plus costs.
