Improved cancer labeling may stop aggressive treatments

A cancer diagnosis is devastating. It is frequently known as the silent killer, and the implications of such a diagnosis quite often lead patients to the belief that the sickness will likely be life-threatening without treatment. However, an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association indicates that the term "cancer" has been misunderstood and misused for far too long.

According to the online publication, some medical professionals believe that a number of illnesses should stop being considered cancer altogether. They argue that labeling them as such leads to medications and therapies that are unnecessarily aggressive. Patients are being scared into undergoing incorrect treatments that can have a negative effect on quality of life for no real reason. The editorial explains that there are variations of cancer that progress so slowly that they will never actually have any impact on the patient's health at any point during their life and thus don't require the same therapies as other forms of cancer. 

Clinic errors such as improperly administering aggressive treatments can have serious consequences on a patient's overall health and wellbeing. Chemotherapy and radiation are commonly ordered to cure and treat malignancies. However, they have been known to cause harsh side effects that some believe are actually worse than those that the cancer produces. Therefore, in some cases, treating patients with these drugs could be considered a negligent practice.

If you or a loved one has suffered from clinic or urgent care mistakes in New York, speaking with a medical malpractice lawyer may be an appropriate step to take. They can help you better understand how to potentially seek compensation for the suffering that was wrongly inflicted on you.
