Delay in Diagnosis of Thyroid Cancer: $900,000 Med Mal Settlement

Providence County, RI — Lubin & Meyer attorneys have reached a settlement in a medical malpractice case involving a man who was diagnosed with metastatic papillary carcinoma of his thyroid gland.

Attorney for the plaintiff, William J. Thompson, claimed that the defendant breached the standard of care for a primary care physician when the defendant failed to immediately follow-up on the plaintiff’s thyroid ultrasound results and failed to immediately follow-up with the radiologist’s recommendation and order a CT scan of the plaintiff’s neck. The plaintiff further alleged that this negligence led to a delay in the diagnosis and treatment of the plaintiff’s thyroid cancer.
