What Are Some Potential Causes of Cancer Misdiagnoses?
There are various ways that cancer may be misdiagnosed or missed entirely. These may include:
- Failure to recommend and perform standard cancer screening tests based off age, cancer history, or symptoms
- Lab errors resulting in false negative or positives
- Misread test results, such as mammograms, blood work, or CT scans
- Failure to recommend a patient to a cancer specialist or further diagnosis/treatment
With a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, cancer that was once treatable may now prove deadly. More aggressive measures may be required to prolong a patient’s life. There is no way to turn back the clock and give a patient a second chance, but there is a way to ensure that the patient and family receive fair compensation for past, current, and future treatment, as well as lost earnings and even emotional trauma.
Together, we can expose cancer misdiagnoses to hold at-fault parties accountable and improve conditions for future patients. Call Cleveland cancer misdiagnosis attorney John Lancione at (440) 220-4439 today.
