A woman had her breast X-rayed. The examination showed a great deal of glandular tissue and a tumor in the lymph node, but there was no sign of cancer. Six months later she experienced pain in the same breast. An examination showed that she had cancer, and she had her breast removed. We ruled that they should have taken a sample during the first examination, since it is highly likely that the cancer would then have been discovered. We did, however reject the case, because we ruled that the treatment (the removal of the breast) would have been the same, even if the cancer had been found during the first examination. The woman's chances of survival were not reduced because of the treatment delay. The conclusion was that legally, she was not entitled to compensation.
