Failure To Diagnose Gynecological Cancer
As with any serious illness or life-threatening medical condition, the key to a successful course of treatment lies in early detection.
A timely, accurate diagnosis of any medical condition can determine the correct course of medical treatment and mitigate future injury or even death.
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for medical providers to miss a diagnosis, particularly for gynecological cancer. 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
