We Know The Common Causes Of Cancer Misdiagnosis
Unfortunately, there are many ways in which cancer can be missed or misdiagnosed. In our practice, most of these cases involve one or more of the following factors:
- Failure to perform screening tests such as a mammogram, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, colonoscopy or skin cancer screening for patients who are asymptomatic but who are at risk due to age, family history or other factors, including smoking, obesity or fair skin
- Laboratory errors such as switched tissue specimens that result in “false positive” diagnosis and unnecessary treatment, including radiation, chemotherapy and surgical procedures such as mastectomy
- Misread X-rays, mammograms, CT scans or other test results
We Have Decades Of Experience Proving Improper Diagnosis
A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of cancer can result in what was once a treatable condition into a more serious, even terminal prognosis. Misdiagnosis and the resulting delay in treatment can be particularly damaging in cancer that has a high success rate if caught early, such as:
- Breast cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Lung cancer
- Skin cancer
- Colon cancer
- Colorectal cancer
At The Lancione Law Firm, our father-son legal team has decades of experience proving fault in medical malpractice. We will apply our background securing multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts to your benefit. As part of our investigation, we will evaluate your medical records, including any tests and procedures that were performed to understand if you have a valid cancer misdiagnosis claim. Our law firm also has access to medical experts proven to be invaluable in helping us establish liability in highly complex medical malpractice claims.
Not all types of cancer are easily treatable in the early stages, and not all misdiagnoses or delayed diagnoses are grounds for a medical malpractice claim. However, if you believe that you or a loved one suffered harm due to a negligent error in diagnosing or treating cancer in Ohio, we encourage you to consult an experienced Ohio cancer misdiagnosis attorney immediately.
