Holding Medical Professionals Accountable For Delayed Cancer Diagnosis
Early diagnosis is critical in any person’s fight against cancer. The sooner a doctor diagnoses your cancer, the better chance of recovery. Unfortunately, if a radiologist fails to see cancer on an X-ray or other medical image, or if a doctor fails to order appropriate tests, it will dramatically impact your chances of survival. Even when cancer is eventually detected, your treatment options may be more invasive and more painful.
When doctors fail to diagnose cancer in a timely fashion, it may be medical malpractice. With a skilled lawyer on your side, you will give your family the best chance to recover appropriate damages. At The Epstein Law Firm, we take on a broad range of medical malpractice claims for people throughout New Jersey.
Taking Action And Getting Answers In Delayed Cancer Diagnosis Cases
Medical professionals can negligently delay diagnosing all types of cancers. This can cause cancer to metastasize and spread throughout the body and might even lead to death. Even if delayed diagnosis does not result in death, it may needlessly compromise a person’s quality of life. For instance, if breast cancer is diagnosed early, it could be treated with a lumpectomy. If it is diagnosed later, a mastectomy may be the only possible treatment.
