Wrong Diagnosis

May 17, 2007

See breaking news about a woman from Tipperary who was given a wrong diagnosis following a breast biopsy.  She was given the all-clear when in fact her biopsy was malignant and she subsequently required a mastectomy.  Cork University Hospital and HSE have apologised to the woman.  Wouldn’t give you a lot of confidence in the system if you’d just had a breast biopsy, would it?
