Cervical Cancer Diagnosis
As one of the state’s leading medical malpractice law firms, The Lancione Law Firm is committed to improving the quality of medical care throughout Ohio. We have three generations of attorneys who have extensive experience and a record of success in cases involving the misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of treatable cancers, such as cervical cancer.
We understand the importance of the early diagnosis and proper treatment of cervical cancer and precancerous conditions such as cervical dysplasia. We also understand that misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis due to failure to perform pap smears, laboratory errors or misinterpretation of test results by a cytotechnologist or pathologist can result in serious, even fatal consequences.
When caught in the early stages, cervical cancer can often be treated by a cone biopsy or loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) — procedures that preserve the ability to have children — along with chemotherapy, radiation or a combination of the two. When a diagnosis is delayed due to a physician’s negligence or laboratory error, treatment may require a hysterectomy. Too long a delay may result in metastasis and terminal, inoperable cancer.
If you or a loved one suffered serious injury or lost the ability to have children due to a negligent delay in diagnosing and treating cervical cancer — or if a loved one died as a result of cervical cancer misdiagnosis — the experienced medical malpractice lawyers at Lancione & Lancione can offer you an evaluation of your case, free of charge.
