Breast cancer misdiagnosis claims

Clear Answers have been successful in getting compensation in delayed referrals with breast cancer. With breast cancer, delay has meant the difference between sample removal of a lump and radical removal of both breast and lymph nodes. For more information on how your claim for misdiagnosis compensation will be assessed, please visit our misdiagnosis page.

We have sympathetic, knowledgeable claims advice lawyers to guide you through a claim.

Breast cancer surgeon under investigation

Ian Paterson, a consultant at the privately operated Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull and the Spire Hospital in Little Aston, is being investigated following allegations that he removed non-cancerous lumps from the breasts of up to 450 patients between 2004 and 2011.

Mr Paterson examined his patients by using ultrasound and mammograms, and advised them that they had pre-cancerous lumps. A simple biopsy would have confirmed that the lumps were in fact benign, and that further surgery was not necessary. This would have avoided the resulting scarring from invasive surgery and the potential risks involved in subjecting his patients to general anaesthetics.

One former patient of Mr Paterson only found out about her unnecessary surgery when she transferred from the private to the public sector for further treatment. She was advised that she was not a high-risk patient as had been advised by Mr Paterson.
