Misdiagnosis Leads to the Fatal Spread of Skin Cancer

Case Study
A 50-year-old man died after a dermatologist misdiagnosed a facial lesion as benign, despite a biopsy report indicating potential skin cancer. After a significant delay, the lesion was diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma, which had fatally spread due to the delay in treatment. Jury verdict of $5.1 million. At the time of the award, this was the highest medical malpractice jury verdict for wrongful death in state history.
