Cancer misdiagnosis is a serious form of medical malpractice that may have deadly consequences. Cancer is a progressive disease that may rapidly take over when left unchecked. Early diagnosis is crucial in virtually all types of cancer and the failure by a doctor or other medical professional’s to diagnose cancer on a timely basis may be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Late diagnosis may mean that the disease will have progressed further, requiring aggressive and immediate treatment for a victim to have even a chance of survival. Other times, it may simply be too late.
There are a number of ways in which cancer misdiagnosis can occur:
- Failure to order a biopsy, x-ray, CT scan or MRI
- Failure to identify a lump in a breast exam
- Failure to order additional tests
- Failure to recognize potential indicators of cancer
- Misdiagnosis of a tumor as benign
- Failure to follow up on test results
- Negligent follow-up care
