Delayed Detection of Prostate Cancer Reduces Treatment Options

The Lancione Law Firm is among the most successful medical malpractice
law firms in the country. We are dedicated to improving the safety and
quality of health care for the people of the State of Ohio, and have substantial
experience and a record of success in cases involving the delayed diagnosis
or misdiagnosis of treatable cancers, such as prostate cancer.

When detected in early stages — by digital rectal exam, PSA screening
or prostate biopsy — many types of prostate cancer are very treatable.
When a primary care physician fails to conduct proper screening in a patient
who is a member of a high risk group due to age, diet, family medical
history or other factors, medical negligence may have occurred.

When prostate cancer is misdiagnosed or there is a lengthy delay in diagnosis,
a condition that may have been treatable through less invasive methods
may require prostatectomy. Like any surgery, rescission or removal of
the prostate carries some serious risks, and errors during prostate surgery
can result in serious lifelong consequences, including incontinence and

“False positive” misdiagnosis also occurs, in which a laboratory
error or doctor’s mistake results in a patient being subjected to
unnecessary prostate surgery. Regardless of the nature of the misdiagnosis,
if you or a loved one suffered needlessly due to improper or delayed treatment
or surgery for prostate cancer, your interests may best be served by contacting
an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.
