Cancer Misdiagnosis

Cancer is a word no one wants to hear but an early diagnosis of this disease can make a world of difference to a person’s chances of making a full recovery. This is why cancer misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis of cancer has such serious implications and can have a devastating impact on someone’s life.

There are many different cancer types and symptoms vary as a result. A doctor should be able to accurately diagnose cancer or refer a patient to a specialist for further investigation if presented with the clinical history and related test results.
Thankfully, cancer misdiagnosis in the UK is rare, but sometimes a patient is told by a medical professional that they do not have cancer when they do or that they have cancer when they don’t. Naturally, both these situations cause a great deal of emotional upset and distress – in the case of a missed diagnosis this can also lead to a delay in treatment which can adversely affect the outcome, and with a misdiagnosis a person may undergo unnecessary surgery and cancer treatment.
Incredibly stressful and worrying, we understand just how devastating this situation can be. If you believe you’ve suffered a cancer misdiagnosis because of medical negligence, you are entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

Missed Diagnosis of Cancer Compensation Claims

As early detection of cancer is vital, if the cancer misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis of cancer caused a delay in diagnosis and can be shown to have altered the treatment or ultimate outcome, you are entitled to compensation.

The process of making a cancer compensation claim is complex, which is why only an expert medical negligence solicitor should handle your case.

To make a claim, you need to show that the standard of care you received from the doctor or medical professional was unacceptable and that there was a failure to diagnose the cancer because of clinical negligence. This may have been a failure to investigate the symptoms properly, test results not being read correctly, no referral to a specialist or lack of a biopsy – and where the action, or failure to act, led to complications and the cancer spreading which ultimately altered the outcome.

You will be dealt with in the strictest confidence and with the utmost sensitivity, and by contacting our cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims team we can advise you on your rights and the best way to proceed that will minimise stress and maximise the likelihood of compensation being awarded.
