Cancer: Late Diagnosis

Late cancer diagnosis? A medical malpractice lawyer can help.

Modern medical technology makes many forms of cancer treatable or curable if caught early. Yet, sometimes cancers of the brain, bladder, breast, colon, cervix, prostate, skin and uterus go undiagnosed and untreated for many months and even years after patients experience and complain of symptoms.

Failure to diagnose cancer could be medical malpractice

A doctor's failure to provide a timely diagnosis of cancer may establish a medical malpractice claim. The most important factor in curing cancer is early detection. Most people do not know the early signs and symptoms of cancer, but doctors should. When a doctor misses these signs and symptoms, the opportunity for early diagnosis, detection and cure may be lost. The failure of a health care provider to be responsive to a possible diagnosis of cancer may drastically alter the available treatment options, quality of life and ultimate survival of a cancer patient.

If a doctor has failed to diagnose cancer, you could be entitled to compensation. Call 1-800-ELK-OHIO to schedule a free consultation with Elk & Elk's experienced medical malpractice attorneys.
