Helping Individuals Seek Justice For A Physician’s Failure To Diagnose Cancer
Timely diagnosis of cancer can mean more treatment options and a more favorable prognosis. Physicians must take into consideration family history, prior medical history, current symptoms, and many other factors when caring for a patient and addressing concerns.
Failure to act in a reasonable manner can be sobering — for a patient who endures unnecessary suffering, for a patient who is given a terminal cancer diagnosis and for a family that learns of a missed diagnosis following a loved one’s death.
