SA government could face legal action over mammograms

A breast cancer review in South Australia has found 72 cases were potentially detectable at the time of initial mammograms, between September 2010 and June 2012.

The state’s Health Minister Jack Snelling says 570 women were recalled for further assessment, as a result of the review.

The revelations are expected to culminate in legal action against the state government.

2 of the 72 women whose cancer was not detected, have since died, while 30 women have developed breast cancer, despite being screened during this period.
