An increasing number of women who underwent laparoscopic procedure involving a power morcellatorhave been filing lawsuits over allegations that the device may spread undetected cancer in the uterus. Recent studies have suggested the prevalence of uterine cancer hidden in benign growths in the uterus, and using a power morcellator may thus trigger the spread of the cancer.
If you have recently been diagnosed with uterine fibroids, it is important to note that not all uterine fibroids should be removed. Growths that show no signs or symptoms and cause no complications may not require treatment and instead may only need watchful waiting. After all, uterine fibroids are known to grow slowly. They also seldom affect pregnancy, and can shrink after menopause.
At Williams Hart, we help women adversely affected by power morcellators file a lawsuit against the manufacturers. To find out whether your circumstances qualify you for a claim, call us at (713) 352-7071 today.
