Failure To Diagnose Cancer

failure to diagnose cancer Failure to Diagnose Cancer is Medical Malpractice

For a patient who has cancer, prompt diagnosis and treatment is critical. There are times when identifiable signs aren’t there, making it difficult for a doctor to properly diagnose cancer. But sometimes the signs are present and the doctor fails to see them.

Holding the Doctor Accountable for Failing to Diagnose Cancer

Physicians are required to maintain high standards of care, but they’re not infallible. Doctors can make any number of mistakes when it comes to making a proper diagnosis:

  • failure to diagnose cancer, therefore administering no treatment
  • delay in cancer diagnosis, therefore treatment is not administered in a timely manner
  • diagnosing cancer as another condition, or diagnosing the incorrect type of cancer, therefore administering improper treatment
  • negligence in administering treatment, therefore not providing the patient the highest standard of care

Treatments that are delayed or altogether missed can have severe consequences in the development and progression of the patient’s cancer.
