Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyer
Our Ohio medical malpractice law firm can help you demand justice
Being diagnosed with cancer can be an important, first step towards receiving the medical care and attention cancer patients need to treat their medical condition. And the sooner doctors can diagnose cancer, the better. That’s because many cancers can be treated effectively if diagnosed early. If not, aggressive cancers can spread quickly and cause serious health problems or death.
That’s why a cancer misdiagnosis – or a delay in diagnosing the disease – can have serious consequences. When this happens, negligence by medical professionals are often to blame. This is known as medical malpractice. Cancer patients and their families have the right to take legal action against the doctor or hospital that made the mistake. However, such legal cases can often be much more complicated than many people might realize. That’s why we want to help.

Why does cancer misdiagnosis happen?
There are many different ways that cancer may be misdiagnosed or missed entirely. Examples of medical malpractice when it comes to cancer misdiagnosis include:
- Failure to recommend and perform standard cancer screening tests based on someone’s age, cancer history or symptoms.
- Lab errors resulting in a false negative or positive test result.
- Misreading test results, such as mammograms, blood work or CT scans.
- Failure to recommend a patient to a cancer specialist for further diagnosis/treatment.
With a negligent misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, cancer that was once treatable can prove deadly. More aggressive measures may be required to prolong a patient’s life. That’s why it’s critical that doctors diagnose cancer right away.
