A deceased woman’s estate has filed a medical malpractice suit after the woman died of cancer. The estate alleges her physicians failed to diagnose a lesion on her scalp as cancerous in a timely fashion. The doctors did not diagnose the woman’s lesion as cancer until the lesion had returned and two different tests were sent to labs. The woman underwent four different surgeries to remove cancer that had spread to other parts of her body by the time she was diagnosed. The estate now amends is medical malpractice complaint to include a wrongful death action.
