A family member was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer that has spread to back and other areas. All her Mammograms were "normal" and she has been to doctor after doctor complaining of back pain.(Obviously not knowing that the Cancer had already eaten up half her spine). Suppossedly X Rays were read as "Normal".She even had her Gall Bladder out due to the belief that was the cause of her back pain. There is a family history of Cancer.Any opinions on whether this is malpractice? Is it truly possible in this day and age for Cancer to go undiagnosed for years that it can spread like that when the person sees Doctor after Doctor?
Thanks for any opinions.
