Great video! Thank you for uploading it.  Very helpful and informative.
First Amendment (9 months ago)
Example one is negligence.....the harm is that the cancer was allowed to grow, thereby making the woman's outcome worse. If the cancer had been diagnosed earlier, her out come could have been much better given today's more effective treatment options for cancer. Remember, early diagnosis for cancer by definition means better outcomes. This case should be actionable against the primary care M.D. for not following-up as recommended by the radiologist. Also, many cancers caught early can save the patient from metastatic processes from primary lung nodules so that the cancer does not go to the brain causing more harm. If this case is a loser, then what's the difference between early cancer diagnosis and late diagnosis? More harm to the patient. Is that not actionable? I believe it is. The common defense is that it would not have made a difference....they always say that as they hand over the check.
