What’s worse than being diagnosed with cancer? Not being diagnosed when you actually have it.

Many types of cancer are treatable when detected early on - breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, testicular cancer, and renal-kidney cancer, to name a few.

Each year, about 580,000 Americans die from cancer, and thousands of them had lost valuable treatment time because of a doctor’s negligence in failing to diagnose the disease.

Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cancer and melanoma malpractice sometimes occurs because the doctor does not assign enough importance to the patient’s complaints or delays in referring the patient to specialists. Doctors may fail to do testing, including MRIs, PSA tests for prostate and mammograms. The radiologist may misread the test results, or the laboratory technician may err in evaluating the biopsy.

Even when tests are done and evaluated correctly, the oncologist needs to recommend the proper treatment. Any number of failures is possible in the sequences of steps that should be followed according to the reasonable standard of care the medical profession sets for cancer and melanoma patients. This can lead to cancer or melanoma misdiagnosis.
