Cancer Misdiagnosis Malpractice Lawyers

Cancer misdiagnosis malpractice lawyers should be contacted if your cancer has been wrongly diasgnosed              800 733-5342

Cancer misdiagnosis is on the rise, despite innovative medical advances.  In fact, every year an estimated 12% of cancer cases — or one of every 8 — are initially misdiagnosed. While a cancer misdiagnosis can cause tremendous pain, fear, stress and financial loss, it also substantially reduces a patient’s chances for full recovery and survival. Medical advances in MRIs and x-rays provide patients with an increased chance at a full recovery; however, a full, healthy recovery depends on a timely diagnosis and proper treatment. A negligently delayed diagnosis of cancer can result in the spread of the disease to a point beyond which medical intervention can help. The progression of cancer can lead to a substantial increase in medical bills, pain and suffering, personal injury and wrongful death.

As a result of medical malpractice, cancer is often misdiagnosed as a cyst, chronic fatigue, graves disease, oral thrust, leukoplakia, dermatitis, halitosis, gastroparesis or anorexia nervosa.  Mistakes  that  malpractice lawyers actions  for include:
