The Tragic Prevalence Of Medical Malpractice Involving Cancer

When cancer starts to take hold in the body, every minute matters. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can make a life-or-death difference.

Cancer misdiagnosis is a leading form of medical negligence. In fact, according to several recent studies, cancer is one of the top two serious medical conditions (alongside heart attacks) that gets overlooked. Failure to properly diagnose cancer can happen through several ways:

  • A missed or delayed diagnosis of cancer can deprive you of viable treatment options. It can even eliminate those options if the cancer has progressed far enough, shortening your life span by years or decades.
  • The wrong diagnosis can cause just as much harm. For example, we handled a high-profile case involving a woman who underwent a double mastectomy after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in error.
  • Finally, improper treatment — such as botched surgeries, medication errors, and inadequate or unreasonable treatment recommendations — can lead to life-altering complications.
