Risk of Breast Cancer Relapse Can Linger

A recent study by oncologists at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center revealed of 2,838 women who had breast cancer ranging from Stage I to Stage III and who had all been disease free at 5 years, only 89% remained disease free at 10 years.  By 15 years only 80% remained disease free.  The risk of recurrence varied by stage and tumor type with Stage I having a 7% chance of recurrence; Stage II having 11% chance of recurrence and Stage III having 13% chance of recurrence.  To learn more see our Library Article Breast Cancer MalpracticeIf you suspect that your breast cancer was not timely and properly diagnosed or treated, please call us at 412-471-4300 or contact us.  At Berger & Lagnese, LLC, our attorneys specialize in medical malpractice, and work on cases in Pittsburgh, Greensburg, Uniontown, Beaver, Erie, Washington, and all courts in Western Pennsylvania.  Our team of lawyers will find out what happened with your medical care and will get you the answers to your questions.
