Holding Doctors Accountable For Delayed and Missed Cancer Diagnosis
It is hard to find someone who has not been negatively affected by cancer in some way. With increasingly effective treatments, however, cancer is no longer the automatic sentence it once was. But diagnosing cancer early is key to its treatment.
That is why a failure to diagnose cancer and misdiagnosing cancer is so tragic. It is a lost opportunity to begin treating cancer in its early stages, when it is most effective.
Even Short Delays in Cancer Diagnosis Can Cause Significant Harm
Many cancer symptoms can be indicative of other medical conditions. Lung cancer symptoms, for example, may seem like bronchitis, leading to crucial time being wasted. Other cancers require an early diagnosis in order for a patient to have a positive outcome. Colorectal cancer is a very aggressive cancer that can cause death within a year of its first symptoms.
That is why medical professionals must follow up on any symptoms that could potentially indicate the presence of cancer. Failing to follow through with tests can cause a dramatic effect on a patient’s outcome.
