A 28-year-old man filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a hospital in Nyrack, New York after an unscheduled mastectomy happened as a result of a misdiagnosis of cancer.
Our firm’s San Diego personal injury lawyers always hope that this does not happen.
When a procedure such as this is necessary, it is important to check and then double check whether or not the procedure is absolutely required. When unnecessary surgeries are done, the effects can be physically painful and emotional traumatic.
In this medical malpractice case, both are present. Physically, a person can have scars permanent marks. Emotionally, a person can be affected because they are not able to process the medical malpractice mistake that caused something physically that was not there before.
Personal trainer Scott Aprile says in his medical malpractice lawsuit that his right breast was removed as a precaution for cancer. Tests later revealed that a mix-up had occurred in tests by Dr. Lawrence Simon.
“My first thought was, ‘Oh, my God, I don’t have cancer. No. 2 was, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.”
Nyack Hospital in Nyack, New York said in a statement related to the medical malpractice lawsuit it regretted Aprile was misdiagnosed with cancer when his biopsy sample accidentally was switched with another patient receiving medical treatment at the same facility.
