A Massachusetts woman began seeing her doctor in 1994. At that time, she had a history of several medical problems including COPD and depression. She did not have her first colonoscopy until 2008 at the age of 73. This colonoscopy revealed colon cancer. The woman died the next year at age 74. The doctor claimed he had recommended that this woman have a colonoscopy on many occasions, but that the woman refused. The woman’s available medical records did not document this alleged non-compliance and the woman’s family settled her medical malpractice lawsuit with the doctor for $500,000.
