The Importance Of Diagnosing Breast Cancer Early
As a result of advances in technology, when breast cancer is found early, it can be effectively treated. However, a doctor’s failure to diagnose breast cancer robs patients of that opportunity for early and successful treatment. Our attorneys have extensive experience helping patients and families obtain compensation for the injuries they sustained because of a failure to diagnose breast cancer.
Our senior attorney, Dennis M. Mahoney, M.D., is a licensed physician. For 22 years of his legal career, he defended hospitals and doctors. In 1990, he began representing victims of doctor negligence and helped patients obtain compensation for their injuries. From our Denver office, we represent clients throughout Colorado and Wyoming.

- Failing to detect a lump during a breast cancer screening
- Failing to order a mammogram in response to a lump detection
- Failing to diagnose breast cancer as a result of improperly reading a mammogram’s results
- Not ordering proper follow-up tests, such as a biopsy
- Misdiagnosis of breast cancer by improperly reading a biopsy’s results
