Misdiagnosis and late diagnosis of cancer is a deadly error that should never happen. With so many sophisticated diagnostic tools at their disposal, such as mammograms, MRI’s, CAT/CT scans and biopsies, doctors should rarely, if ever, fail to correctly diagnose a patient’s cancer in a timely manner while the disease may still be treatable.
However, the frightening fact remains that while last year more than 300,000 men and women were diagnosed with either prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer or malignant melanoma (skin cancer), there were thousands of patients whose cancer went undetected or detected too late. These people suffered devastating consequences of the negligence or errors made by doctors and/or by a pathologist who misread a biopsy or by a radiologist who misread the films from a scan.
Not only were the patients’ lives destroyed, but spouses and children of the patients very often lost the emotional and financial support they depended on in their everyday lives. The New York and New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers at Simonson Goodman Platzer PC have been representing victims of late diagnosis of cancer and misdiagnosis of cancer for decades.
