If you have been the victim of medical malpractice involving cancer, make sure to contact the New York Cancer Malpractice lawyers at Simonson Goodman Platzer PC.
Misdiagnosing cancer or diagnosing it when it’s too late to treat successfully is a serious error that should not occur. Doctors today have numerous advanced diagnostic tools, such as digital mammograms, MRIs, CAT/CT scans and biopsies, so failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing cancer should rarely, if ever, occur.
However, statistics reveal that while annually more than 300,000 men and women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, or malignant melanoma (skin cancer), there are still thousands of patients whose cancer is not diagnosed or diagnosed too late for treatment. These unfortunate patients, as well as their spouses, children and other family members, suffer the egregious consequences of the negligence or errors of doctors, pathologists who misread a biopsy, or radiologists who misread a scan.
