Medical Negligence : Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis : Cancer Misdiagnosis

Cancer Misdiagnosis

Cancer needs to be diagnosed accurately and at the earliest possible opportunity to give you, the patient the best chance of recovery.

If your diagnosis was late – or if misdiagnosis occurred – the cancer can be harder to treat. In the worst cases it can become terminal.

Whilst no amount of money will make up for this failing, it could provide for you and your family as you battle the illness and go through a very difficult time.

Types Of Cancer Misdiagnosis

  • Delay or failure to refer you to a specialist
  • Failure to arrange further testing when symptoms first became known
  • Failure to schedule a biopsy or investigation once abnormalities were discovered
  • Failure to act appropriately once results were given to them
  • Failure to organise the required treatments

Will It Affect My Care?

The simple answer: No.

Most claims occur after you the patient have left hospital but in some cases you may still be being treated. You can still claim compensation in this situation – but there are wider considerations.

Yes, you can change your doctor or hospital in mid-treatment. But if you do decide to stay at the same hospital, it is likely that you will be seen by a different consultant and team.

These are respected professionals so you should not see them treat any less well because you’re taking legal action against their colleague – if anything you’re likely to be treated better as they attempted to fix the original mistake.
