When you undergo a medical exam or report possible symptoms of illness to your doctor, you rightfully expect him or her to follow accepted medical practices in evaluating your state of health. If you show signs of possible cancer or if you undergo a thorough exam, you naturally expect your physician to order the right tests, evaluate those tests accurately and inform you if you may have developed cancer such as:
- Breast cancer
- Melanoma (skin cancer)
- Prostate cancer
- Lung cancer
- Throat cancer
Failure to diagnose cancer in a timely manner can amount to medical malpractice. If a laboratory technician misread your test results or if your doctor delayed diagnosing cancer, and now you are in an advanced stage of cancer as a result, you are wise to be considering taking legal action. Our medical malpractice lawyers can evaluate your case and advise you about how we can help you pursue compensation if it is warranted.
If Gammon & Grange, P.C., handles your cancer misdiagnosis case, we will consult with appropriate medical experts. These experts may testify in settlement conferences or in court about what doctors reasonably should have done to prevent missing the diagnosis of your cancerous condition.
