The Serious Danger of Missed Colorectal Cancer
Many people who properly get a routine colonoscopy to ensure their health may go 7-10 years between exams. If colon cancer is missed by a doctor or lab during a routine exam, the consequences can be catastrophic.
Only lung cancer claims more cancer lives every year. If you believe the doctor error or medical malpractice caused a missed cancer diagnosis, then you need a partner on your side with the experience to get answers and get results. At the Pennsylvania law offices of Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., in New Castle, Hermitage, Butler and Erie our attorneys have a reputation for successful representation spanning more than 25 years.
When Doctor Error Leads to Colon Cancer Misdiagnosis
The most important factor in treating any form of cancer is often how early you can diagnose and begin treatment. Medical malpractice that causes a patient to go perhaps years without a proper diagnosis for colon cancer is serious negligence, particularly when even months or weeks can make all the difference.
Particularly if you demonstrate some of the most common symptoms for colon cancer, if your doctor fails to recognize the symptoms, fails to order the test or misses cancerous growth or polyps during the test, you may have a medical malpractice claim for cancer misdiagnosis.
If you are suffering from colorectal cancer, or if your loved one has died from colon cancer, and you suspect that the disease should have been caught earlier, then you need to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible.
