Two issues arise in malpractice claims: liability, 1) did the doctor deviate from standards of reasonable care and 2) did that deviation substantially alter the treatment outcome,   

Liability

Claims of breast  cancer malpractice typically involve failure to take strong action when a suspicious lesion and potential tumor is located.  Insufficient testing, misinterpretation of a mammogram, failure to order a biopsy in diagnostic testing are characteristic of claims.   

Causation 

Not every error creates a claim-  the court must evaluate whether a delay changed the outcome.  Sometimes delays will worsen the patient's prognosis, and an expert must identify with reasonable certainty the consequence of delay.
