A Maryland jury decided in favor of a woman who developed lung cancer after her gynecologist failed to follow up on the results of a hysterectomy properly. Specifically, the gynecologist failed to share with the patient a pathologist’s warnings in 2011 that the uterine tumors she discovered during the hysterectomy were potentially malignant. The pathologist had recommended close clinical follow-up treatment, but the OBGYN took no steps to institute a close clinical follow-up of the surgical pathology results.
In 2014, the patient underwent medical tests that revealed she had metastatic lung cancer that likely originated in the uterus, according to the complaint. The patient currently suffers from stage-4 sarcoma in her lungs.
