Cancer Misdiagnosis

Philadelphia Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyer

Understanding Your Legal Rights

Being diagnosed with cancer can be a distressing experience, but that vital information allows you to decide what kind of treatment to seek and what other steps you wish to take. Early detection may increase the odds that you will be able to beat it into remission. But when necessary tests aren't performed or results are misinterpreted, the chances of recovery become slimmer. If a patient is misdiagnosed, vital treatments can be delayed or improper treatments can be administered, hindering remission and recovery and causing unnecessary pain and suffering.

Cancer misdiagnosis cases may involve:

  • Incorrect diagnosis (patient was diagnosed with the wrong disease)
  • Missed diagnosis (cancer left undetected)
  • Wrong diagnosis (patient was actually cancer-free)
