A New York woman suffered sever injuries because doctors failed to inform her that she had tested positive for breast cancer. The woman first detected what she thought might be symptoms of breast cancer. She went to her doctor, and then to a hospital, to get a diagnosis. The medical staff did all of the appropriate tests, and the tests came back positive for breast cancer. Inexplicably, however, the doctors failed to communicate this to the woman – after saying that they would notify her if there were any problems with her tests, they did not. She continued to experience symptoms, and continued to follow up, until finally the doctors located her results and notified her that her tests were indeed positive. By that time, however, the cancer had advanced, and required far more invasive treatment than would otherwise have been required.
