Doctors who fail to diagnose cancer put lives at risk

Even with advanced technology, a surprising number of cancers are not detected soon enough or diagnosed properly. Although the National Cancer Institute reports that mammograms do not detect roughly 20 percent of all breast cancer cases, some false-negatives are the result of a doctor's careless mistake and may constitute medical malpractice.

When it comes to cancer diagnosis and treatment, there are a number of ways that doctors have let their patients down. For example, a doctor may have missed a patient's tumor even though they complained about a variety of cancer symptoms, such as weight loss, lumps and bleeding. Also, doctors sometimes miss lesions and tumors after a patient undergoes an MRI or CAT scan for a separate condition. Other examples of medical negligence include failing to accurately convey information, ensure that necessary tests are performed or provide decent follow-up care and recommendations.

Unfortunately, these doctor errors can increase the likelihood of death and unnecessary suffering. Rooting out cancer as soon as possible is crucial and patients do not deserve inferior care which may put their life at risk. If you or one of your loved ones believe that a doctor failed to provide a proper cancer diagnosis, those who are responsible have to be held accountable.

At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld LLP, we understand how painful cancer is, both physically and emotionally. If you are dealing with this firsthand, it is important to understand your options and take action.
