This case takes place in New York involves a woman who was getting regular mammograms over a period of several years, which appeared to be consistently negative. Eventually, however, the patient received a mammogram which revealed a suspicious mass. Upon further examination of the mass, it was discovered to be an advanced case of breast cancer. Despite aggressive treatment of the woman’s cancer, she eventually succumbed to the disease, which had already metastasized to other areas in her body by the time it was first detected. In spite of the fact that her previous screenings had not detected anything suspicious, it was later discovered that a potentially worrying mass was present in an earlier mammogram. It is alleged that, had the mass in the earlier mammogram been properly identified, treatment could have begun much earlier, potentially saving the woman’s life.
