Cancer misdiagnosis claims can result from delayed diagnosis or incorrect diagnosis happen when opportunities for diagnosis are missed and the condition has developed to a more advanced stage. The delay make a real difference to the outcome. Sometimes, the effects are extremely serious and significantly reduce a patient’s life expectancy. Other problems arise when patients are misdiagnosed as having cancer when in fact they do not. When this happens patients undergo unnecessary medical procedures and can also cause a severe psychological reaction to the belief that they are terminally ill.
Cancer negligence claims are complicated and it is important that you seek good legal advice. Often it will be necessary to obtain opinion from different specialist to prove delayed diagnosis of cancer.
