Cancer Misdiagnosis & Mistakes Rasansky Law Firm October 28, 2016

Losing the advantage of an early cancer diagnosis could cost you more than money.  Let us help you seek justice.

Our cancer misdiagnosis lawyers know time is the most important factor in any disease treatment, especially cancer, and valuable loss of time through negligence, medical errors, and mistakes occurs when a physician or doctor fails to properly treat a medical condition, resulting in a new or aggravating injury to the patient. Medical malpractice claims occur when a doctor acts or fails to act in a manner in which a reasonably prudent doctor (with the same training, education, and practicing in the same field of medicine) would act under the same set of circumstances.

Cancer Misdiagnosis

Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawsuits

Types of medical malpractice, medical mistakes or medical errors, as it relates to cancer misdiagnosis or failure to treat cancer cases include the following:

  • Failure to properly diagnose the type of cancer
  • Failure to properly monitor patients
  • Failure to properly treat the diagnosed disease
  • Failure to fully inform the patient of the risks of certain procedures and surgeries

More than one in ten women in the USA will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime. Misdiagnosis or mistreatment of breast cancer results in more legal claims for medical malpractice than for any other disease. This illness often responds well to treatment and early detection is the key factor to higher survival rates.

Every year, over 20,000 people in the US will be diagnosed as suffering from stomach cancer, which can be difficult to detect.

  • Cervical Cancer is regarded by the medical profession as a preventable disease because pre-cancerous changes can be detected by pap smears obtained during routine pelvic examinations. Significant advances by medical professionals have made it possible to effectively prevent and treat this illness through early detection, thereby minimize the effects of this type of cancer.
  • Colon Cancer is the second highest cause of cancer death in the United States and failure of diagnosis is one of the most frequent causes of medical malpractice claims.
  • Lung Cancer is usually diagnosed by a biopsy which is the removal of a small sample of tissue for examination under a microscope by a pathologist.
  • Ovarian Cancer is a malignant tumor that can spread to other tissues and organs including the peritoneum and the diaphragm and can also enter the bloodstream or lymphatic system and travel to other parts of the body.
  • Prostate Cancer is the most common malignancy in men. Almost 200,000 cases are diagnosed in the USA every year and over 15,000 men will die from this disease.
