Misdiagnosed Woman Undergoes Double Mastectomy for No Reason

Filed under Mastectomy |

A 35-year-old single mother from New York has undergone an unnecessary double mastectomy after her biopsy results were mixed up with another woman's.

"I remember the words, 'You don't have breast cancer, you never did,'" Eason said today on "Good Morning America."

The news was stunning.

"I have a philosophy that you have to laugh to keep from crying, so I try to laugh as much as I can," Eason said.

It seems unthinkable that such a thing can happen. The article suggests getting a second biopsy if you are diagnosed with cancer.

Eason is suing the laboratory that mixed up the biopsies for an undisclosed sum.
