This case takes place in Illinois and involves a younger female patient who developed cancer. She presented to the defending dermatologist for evaluation of a mole on her right shoulder blade. A few days after her initial examination, the patient underwent a biopsy of the mole, and her dermatologist attempted to remove it using cryotherapy. Roughly 6 months later, the patient noticed a lump she developed in the area near her armpit. The lump was biopsied and was found to be metastatic skin cancer. It was determined that the original mole she had on her right shoulder blade was cancer and had not been properly excised. The untreated cancer was then able to metastasize. Due to the delay in diagnosis and delayed treatment of the initial mole, the patient’s options for treatment were vastly reduced.
