Two years ago my OBGYN neglected to tell me I had a tumor on my ovary *we will call her Peggy*. I called for the results of the ultrasound and she exclaimed "well it says in your charts you had a large cyst on your r. ovary"
Within a month, the cyst was a tumor that was the size of a softball. It had twisted and I had to have an emergency surgery by a different OBGYN/surgeon *we will call her Nancy* After that I felt so angry at dr. peggy I asked the OBG who preformed the surgery to be my OBG. She agreed, and 5mo after that delievered my healthy baby.
Recently I went to Dr. Nancy will horrible pain around my ovarys. she said it sounded like Endomitriosis. So we did a laproscopy. She said she found nothing, that the pain was mental. She sent me home with photo's from the surgery. After reviewing them, I found a cyst! I called and she confirmed it, but said its nothing to worry about- thats why she didnt tell me.

I would sue for every penny she has. I would also bring this issue to the attention of the State Physician Licensing and file a report on that doctor!!

ALso just a side note I have found that female ob's tend to not make a big deal about things that male obs will make a deal about. female doctors dont find some things quite as important as males, thats JMHO and my experience and its why only my general practitioner is female.
