Commonly Misdiagnosed Cancers
Some cancers have obvious signs, especially in the later stages. These same diseases may not be easily recognized in the early stages, however, and other cancers are rare or do not have clear symptoms. But no matter what type or extent of the illness, a doctor should be held accountable for misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose the illness under reasonable circumstances.
Some commonly misdiagnosed cancers include:
- Breast cancer
- Colon cancer
- Skin cancer
- Lung cancer
- Stomach cancer
Did your doctor fail to conduct the proper tests? Was the x-ray misinterpreted? Did a technician fail to report lab tests? When dealing with cancer, a delayed diagnosis can literally mean the difference between life and death. We aggressively pursue maximum compensation for our clients.
