Failure to Diagnose Cancer

Today’s medical advances mean that certain types of cancer that were once untreatable can now be successfully treated, if detected in a timely manner. The role of early diagnosis in a patient’s improvement, recovery and survival cannot be denied.

As such, when a doctor fails to diagnose cancer in a patient who places his or her trust in health care professionals — a wrong has taken place that must be made right.

The Mercaldo Law Firm · Reputation for Results in Medical Negligence Cases

Modern medicine and our health care system make it possible to treat many different kinds of cancer: breast, lung, skin and prostate, just to name a few. Even in more difficult cases, early detection and timely treatment can prolong a patient’s life.

Some doctors, however, fail to meet the standard of care and treatment that all patients are entitled to. Failing to pursue appropriate testing or recognize the early signs and symptoms of cancer are two early missteps that can have serious consequences. Additionally, X-rays and lab results may be misread or misinterpreted. Confusion in communication can occur between physicians, other medical professionals and various hospital departments.

Then there is the matter of administering appropriate treatment, once cancer is diagnosed. If chemotherapy, radiation and surgery are not executed in time, cancer can spread and a patient can become terminal.
