Cervical Cancer Misdiagnosis
The Cervical Check scandal came into the public eye in recent times when Vicky Phelan, whose cervical cancer was terminal, settled a High Court action against a US laboratory for €2.5 million over incorrect smear test results from 2011.
The Health Service Executive have confirmed that 17 women whose cases were reviewed as part of an audit into the scheme have died. The Director General of the HSE has now said that it is possible that withholding the review of women’s smear tests may have had an impact on their cancer treatment.
