San Diego Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyer
Cancer Misdiagnosis and Malpractice Claims
A very important part of every modern health care program includes the early screening and correct diagnosis of cancer or conditions that can lead to cancer. Of the over half million deaths caused by cancer each year how many people could have been saved if their condition had been diagnosed early enough to successfully treat or even prevent the disease? Unfortunately, mild symptoms can be ignored or initially misdiagnosed that can ultimately lead to years of suffering and huge medical costs or even result in a premature death. At Pacific Attorney Group, we have years of experience helping cancer victims and their families. If you or a loved one has suffered a misdiagnosis of cancer that resulted in your not receiving proper care earlier and that misdiagnosis caused an aggravation or worsening of your health, you should consult with a San Diego Medical Malpractice Attorney as soon as possible. We will carefully review your case and medical records and advise you on your legal rights.

Doctors who examine a patient with various symptoms and who miss or fail to test for such conditions as breast cancer or colon cancer that could have been detected and treated early can be guilty of medical malpractice. Breast cancer misdiagnosis can happen when lumps are detected in mammograms and are ignored or not further tested. There are simple procedures to check the nature of a lump or mass when found. If these tests are not performed early on, cancers that could have been treated much earlier are missed.
A delayed cancer diagnosis not only allows the disease to develop farther and faster but also makes your treatment much more expensive and lengthy. If you have suffered from a cancer misdiagnosis you should consult with one of our medical malpractice attorneys to review your medical history.
