Being diagnosed with cancer is never what someone wants to experience. Even more upsetting is learning that your cancer symptoms were misdiagnosed, causing you to lose valuable time to begin cancer treatment. When cancer is misdiagnosed, patients often suffer significant harm due to treatment delays, worsening of the disease, and requiring treatment that may not have been necessary if cancer had been caught when it should have been.
If you have suffered injuries or lost a loved one due to cancer misdiagnosis, you may be entitled to compensation in a personal injury claim against the responsible medical professionals and facilities.

How Cancer Misdiagnosis Happens
Misdiagnosing cancer and other diseases is not always the result of medical negligence, but when it is, those responsible should be held accountable. Common reasons for misdiagnosis include failing to order tests, dismissing patient complaints, failing to recognize common symptoms, and providing an incorrect diagnosis. Cancer misdiagnosis can cause patients to undergo unnecessary medical treatments, delays in treatment, and having to endure pain and suffering that would not have occurred had the cancer been correctly diagnosed when it should have been.
