Failure to Diagnose Cancer – The Sad Truth
It is common knowledge that the key to surviving cancer is catching the disease before it spreads through the body. Doctors perform tests to screen for cancer in the hopes of making an early diagnosis. If there is even a small possibility of cancer, the doctor should refer you to the proper specialist and the necessary tests should be done.
How Doctors Miss a Diagnosis
A missed diagnosis often has fatal results. But how do doctors miss a cancer diagnosis?
– A non-specialist may not recognize the signs of cancer
– A doctor may fail to order the necessary screening tests
– A doctor may attribute your symptoms to another illness
– A radiologist may misinterpret a mass
– A pathologist may make an error when testing or interpreting the cancerous tissue sample
The Sad Truth
A doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer may inevitably lead to incredible pain and suffering for the victim. The patient isn’t the only one who is injured; the patient’s family must watch their father, daughter, mother, husband, or loved one suffer. A failure to diagnose cancer claim is difficult because proving negligence by the doctor is an uphill battle, which is why having an attorney that has experience with medical malpractice claims may make a difference in the success of your claim.
