Fighting for Your Rights in the Local Community for Over 20 Years
While a cancer diagnosis is certainly devastating, a misdiagnosis is truly a tragedy of immense proportions. If a doctor fails to diagnose cancer in early stages, it will almost always result in a patient receiving more drastic forms of treatment, significantly higher medical costs, and a much greater chance for severe suffering and an early death.
It’s estimated that approximately 12% of all cancer patients are initially misdiagnosed. How could a doctor misdiagnose cancer? There are many reasons, including erroneous lab results, misinterpretation of findings, overlooked lesions, or the failure of the doctor to adequately listen and understand the patient’s complaints. Many forms of cancer are treatable and manageable if caught in the early stages. But a misdiagnosis can leave a patient untreated until late stages… and by then it could be too late.
While no one is perfect, including some of Maryland’s best doctors, all patients need to have their rights protected. A cancer misdiagnosis could cause undue harm, pain, suffering and even death. It can also cause severe financial hardships. Families can be devastated.
That’s why if you or a loved one is a victim of cancer misdiagnosis, it is important that you contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. In these types of cases, timing is of the essence.
