Delays in Diagnosis of Lung Cancer Affect Prognosis

by | Apr 16, 2014 | Firm News, Medical Malpractice |


Lung cancer is one of the most serious forms of cancer for men and women.
More people die from lung cancer than from several other forms of combined
cancer, including prostate cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. The
sooner a diagnosis is made, the better the chances are for patients to
make a full recovery.

Timing is everything for individuals diagnosed with cancer. If your doctor
failed to diagnose your cancer as the earliest stage possible, this could
greatly affect your prognosis. Obtain experienced legal counsel to protect
your best interests.

At The Lancione Law Firm, we have more than 60 years of combined experience
holding medical professionals in Ohio accountable for their negligent
actions. Put our law firm’s experience and legal resources to work
for you. Call 440-571-6862 or

What Are The Signs Of Lung Cancer?

Lung cancer symptoms can vary from patients but generally include:

  • Nagging cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headaches
  • Chronic chest pain
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Sharp pain when swallowing

Doctors and other health care professionals are responsible to take action
when the signs of lung cancer first become present. However, all too often,
family practitioners assume their patients have bronchitis or a less serious
medical condition instead of taking proactive measures to rule out the
possibility of cancer. If your doctor failed to request a chest X-ray
at the earliest stage possible, you may have been misdiagnosed.

This misstep could dramatically affect your treatment plan and even your
chances of survival. When the stakes are high, entrust our law firm to
protect your rights. Our Cleveland Medical Malpractice lawyers will determine
if you have a valid cancer misdiagnosis claim. We are fully prepared to
prove fault and help you obtain a full financial recovery.
