UK hospital blunder in Breast Cancer diagnosis

Posted:
UNITED KINGDOM (NBC) -- A blunder at a United Kingdom hospital led to 18 women being told they have breast cancer, despite previously being given the all-clear.

The alarm was raised when employees voiced concerns.  Hundreds of tests dating back three years were re-examined.  Some patients were then given the devastating news they had the disease.

Many are currently undergoing treatment.
