NT women's breasts removed unnecessarily

A Northern Territory doctor wasn't sacked or reprimanded after misdiagnosing two women with cancer who had their breasts removed unnecessarily.

A 60-year-old woman in Darwin and a 25-year-old breastfeeding mother in Alice Springs both had mastectomy surgeries after being misdiagnosed by the same pathologist three years ago, the ABC has revealed.

Professor John Skinner later identified the errors himself and reported them to Royal Darwin Hospital
