To ensure lifesaving treatment it is essential that cancer is detected in its earliest stages. When doctors fail to recognize symptoms or to order appropriate tests, chances of survival decrease – often significantly. If you or a loved one have suffered damages due to a delayed or missed cancer diagnosis, the medical malpractice attorneys at GoldenbergLaw can help you get the compensation you deserve. Please call us at 612-436-5026 to schedule a free consultation and learn more about your rights.
Common Causes of an Overlooked Cancer Diagnosis
Some of the leading causes of an overlooked or delayed cancer diagnosis by a medical professional include:
- Failure to recognize symptoms of cancer
- Mistaking cancer symptoms for a benign condition
- Failure to order proper tests
- Failure to follow protocol for blood and tissue sampling
- Incorrect reading of test results
These failures on the part of a healthcare provider may be a form of medical malpractice and entitle you to significant compensation. If you suspect the diagnosis of your cancer was delayed due to these factors or any other form of negligence, we welcome an opportunity to meet with you for a free consultation to review your case, discuss your options, and help you choose the most effective way to get the full compensation you deserve.
