Fine needle aspiration pathological biopsies can take wind out of your sail.

Our firm is currently litigating a cancer misdiagnosis action against a large Nashville hospital and two surgical pathologists.  Client undergoes two fine needle aspiration biopsies and pathologist renders diagnosis of lung cancer (non small cell carcinoma).  Relying upon this pathological diagnosis, vascular surgeon proceeds with a right upper lobectomy which removes the entire right upper lobe of client’s lung.  A post operative review of a lung tissue resection renders a negative report for lung cancer.  Hospital reviews the initial slides of pre operative fine needle aspirations which is a cytological form of biopsy where groups of cells are analyzed and later find no evidence of cancer.  Now our client has half of a right lung.  Talk about taking the wind out of her sail.  Cancer misdiagnosis is a common form of medical mal practice and our firm as access to top experts who can perform a blind review of pathology slides and render an expert medical opinion.  This was deemed an egregious violation of the standard of care.
