Breast cancer is difficult enough to treat that people need every advantage they can get to help ensure that they are able to beat it. An accurate diagnosis is the first step necessary in a successful treatment. Unfortunately, there is a significant rate of misdiagnosis of breast cancer.
While most medical providers are attentive to the needs of their patients, sometimes circumstances arise where the providers appear to place profits ahead of a patient's well-being. Recently there were reports that the Massachusetts General Hospital scheduled multiple surgical procedures in a manner that surgeons were scheduled to perform procedures on two separate patients at the same time. Apparently patients undergoing these surgeries were also unaware of such a policy.
