Here are 4 major new areas in which medical malpractice cases are emerging relating t breast cancer:
- Failure to prevent breast cancer
- Failure to identify genetic risk factors
- Failure to use available technology to determine ideal treatment

In addition, a very new area is genomic profiling in cases where complications arose after unnecessary chemotherapy.
