What is considered malpractice?

Question Details: I've been seeing an ENT for a lump in my throat feeling that I've had for several years now. He ran some tests on me, including a CT SCAN. His notes stated that I have a polyp versus retention cyst in my left maxillary sinus. It states "Report Indication Dysphasia", which is completely unrelated to what I'm experiencing. There must have had a slip up in his report with the spelling. Dysphasia vs Dysphagia? If this is documented, is this considered malpractice?
