A lawsuit was recently filed against a doctor in Knoxville for failing to detect breast cancer at an early stage and provide appropriate treatment, an October 4 article of Murfreesboro Post reported.
Reports said Joey DiDomenico and his wife Laure are suing Doctor Terry Witt for failing to detect the pain experienced by Laure on her left breast was cancerous. Laure went to Dr. Witt’s clinic in July 2015 due to a complaint that she had a painful tender mass in her left breast. The doctor downplayed the symptoms and advised her to lessen her caffeine intake, the lawsuit said. Laure’s condition progressed to Stage IV breast cancer as Witt did not schedule her for a biopsy. Witt also allegedly failed to refer her patient to another specialist who could have detected and treated the condition. Laure then found out her condition worsened after consulting two other doctors. The couple is seeking damage claims amounting to $15 million as Laure’s condition is likely fatal.
