Cancer Misdiagnosis or Cancer Diagnosis Delay

Cancer Misdiagnosis (or Delayed Cancer Diagnosis)

When it comes to fighting cancer, early detection and treatment are critical. Any delay in diagnosing the disease, ordering necessary medical tests, or administering proper treatment gives cancer time to spread throughout the body. Too often, the cancer misdiagnosis or diagnosis delay means that the cancer has reached such an advanced stage that the patient’s chances for recovery are slim.

It is unacceptable for a physician to ignore cancer symptoms or fail to administer the inexpensive routine tests that detect common cancers. Common types of misdiagnosed cancer include:

  • breast cancer
  • colon cancer
  • cervical cancer
  • skin cancer or melanoma
  • bone cancer or sarcoma
  • prostate cancer

Your physician’s failure to detect or diagnose your cancer or to order pre-cancer screening tests in a timely manner may be grounds for a Michigan medical malpractice lawsuit. If you or a loved one has been the victim of cancer misdiagnosis or cancer diagnosis delay, call Thurswell Law for a free consultation.
