Doctors Fail to Diagnose Lung Cancer After Chest X-Ray

Our client was required, as a condition of his employment, to undergo a yearly physical examination including a chest x-ray. The client was given an x-ray and a doctor interpreted the imaging to show a small area of increased density in the left lung - probably benign. Nothing further was done and the client was not notified of the results. The following year during his physical, an x-ray revealed a left upper lobe mass. An enhanced CT scan displayed a left pulmonary lesion that could not be ruled benign or malignant. A biopsy was performed and the client was eventually diagnosed with Stage IIIB, T-4, N-3, non-small lung carcinoma. Radiation and chemotherapy has been ineffective due to the advanced stage of the cancer. The case settled for $3,750,000.00.
