The plaintiff, age seventy-one, went to her primary care physician, Dr. James Robilotti, Jr., in April 2005. The plaintiff claimed that she reported a lump in her left breast. Dr. Robilotti ordered a mammogram, which was interpreted by Dr. Sunil Trasi. The report found no indication of cancer. In August 2006 the plaintiff was diagnosed with poorly differentiated, ductal carcinoma of the left breast. The plaintiff underwent a lumpectomy and chemotherapy and her lymph nodes were subsequently found negative for cancer. The plaintiff claimed that the cancer should have been diagnosed in April 2005. The plaintiff claimed that the April 2005 mammogram had suspicious findings. Dr. Robilotti claimed that the plaintiff never reported a lump. According to a published account a $1.2 million settlement was reached.
