Northeast Ohio Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers
A timely diagnosis of cancer usually means further treatment opportunities and a greater quality of life. The longer a delay in diagnosis, the worst chance of recovery one has. Harm resulting from these delays may include permanent injury, additional medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and even death.
Many doctors and oncologists spend very little time with their patients nowadays, so even though our diagnostic tools have improved dramatically delays are still prevalent.
Common types of cancer that involve diagnosis delays include:
- Lung Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Cervical Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Esophageal Cancer
Doctors who ignore signs of any of the foregoing types of cancer put their patients at great risk. With any cancer, the earlier the diagnosis the greater chance of survival.
Delays in the diagnosis of cancer can cause the following injuries and/or harm:
- Permanent disability
- Medical expenses
- Future medical care
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional harm
