To effectively treat cancer it must be detected early. Physicians are trained to detect symptoms and signs that indicate a patient may have early stage cancer. A number of diagnostic tests are available to help the medical provider make an early diagnosis before a patient even begins to experience symptoms. Sometimes however, patients do not receive proper medical care and preventative testing. This means their cancer goes undetected, which can harm the patient or result in death.
Whether you question a failure to diagnose skin cancer, or think there has been a failure to diagnose or a misdiagnosis of pancreatic cancer, or a failure to diagnose lymphoma, or there is some other type of cancer you are concerned about, look for these common issues:
Failure to recognize obvious symptoms of cancer
Failure to order appropriate medical tests
Failure to interpret medical tests correctly
Misdiagnosis of cancer, leading to inappropriate treatment
