A New Prague gynecologist who failed to refer a patient for cancer testing because he had an “impression” that a mass in her abdomen was benign was reprimanded and told to take a class, the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice announced last week.
Dr. Christopher N. Moga scheduled the patient for a hysterectomy and ovary removal, though a test “suggested a possible malignancy,” the board wrote in its order.
While operating, Moga noted an enlarged ovary and he ruptured a cyst. Moga then consulted a general surgeon, performed a biopsy and stopped the procedure. The biopsy was cancerous and the patient later died from complications during chemotherapy treatment.
Moga must take a class on how to recognize these conditions and write a report, the board’s order stated.
