Failure to Diagnose Cancer Attorneys It is simple: early detection saves lives. When diseases are diagnosed in their earliest stages, doctors generally have far more options to treat the disease, and patients typically enjoy a much more favorable prognosis. When people are ill or are experiencing symptoms of cancer or other serious disease, they depend on their physicians to make accurate, timely diagnoses.In too many cases, however, doctors fail to review test results indicating the presence of cancer or other disease. In other cases, doctors may fail to conduct tests, despite the presence of clear warning signs. When a disease is left untreated for a lengthy period of time, a patient’s prognosis can go downhill quickly. In many cases, people must suffer through invasive, painful courses of treatment that would otherwise be unnecessary but for the doctor’s negligence.
When doctors fail to diagnose an illness or misdiagnose an illness, it is often malpractice.
