Failure to Accurately Diagnose Cancer Causes Serious Repercussions
Regardless of the type or location, all forms of cancer have one thing in common: the best chance for recovery is treatment in the early stages. Armed with today’s advanced technology, medical professionals can quickly and easily order or perform pre-cancer and early stage cancer screenings, such as mammograms, pap smears, colonoscopies, sigmoidoscopies, fecal occult blood tests, MRIs, PSA tests and more. Failure to perform these tests, or not order them in a timely manner, may constitute medical malpractice and be grounds for a cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit.
Misinterpretation of these tests is another ground for a medical malpractice claim. Health care providers may completely miss or misinterpret suspicious masses on MRIs, ultrasounds and x-rays. They can misread abnormal cells on pathology slides. These errors cause real, significant harm.
