A failure to timely diagnose cancer could be medical malpractice
Early detection is key to successfully treating cancer. While patients may not recognize the early signs of cancer, doctors are trained to do just that. Yet doctors fail to diagnose cancer for a variety of reasons, such as:
- Failing to understand the significance of a patient's symptoms
- Not asking the right questions
- Failing to order the correct tests
- Delaying a referral to an oncologist
When a doctor fails to detect cancer, the patient loses a chance for an early diagnosis. Treatment options may be reduced or altered, quality of life may suffer and a patient's chance of survival may decrease. For these reasons, a doctor's doctor's failure to provide a timely diagnosis of cancer may be medical malpractice.
