Failure To Diagnose Gynecological Cancer Can Be Catastrophic

As with any serious illness or life-threatening medical condition, the key to a successful course of treatment lies in early detection. A missed diagnosis or a delay in an accurate diagnosis can be the difference between life and death. If your chosen medical professional failed to recommend routine cancer screening tests, failed to properly interpret the tests, or failed to timely treat or properly refer you or your loved one to a specialist for further consultation and treatment, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.

Delayed Diagnosis And Failure To Detect Cancer

A timely, accurate diagnosis is central to determining the correct course of medical treatment. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for medical providers to miss a diagnosis. A delayed diagnosis can result from numerous factors, including:

  • Not ordering the correct tests
  • Not properly interpreting the test results
  • Not communicating with other departments in the medical facility
  • Not collecting a thorough patient history
  • Not communicating with the patient
  • Not recommending proper follow up
  • Not consulting with appropriate specialists

Did your doctor order the proper test to screen for gynecologic cancer, such as a mammogram, MRI or Pap smear? Were the tests properly interpreted? Were the results conveyed to you and specialists in a timely manner? Was the follow up appropriate based on the test results? Our legal team will thoroughly investigate your situation and determine if any mistakes were made in your care and treatment.
