Oklahoma City Medical Malpractice Attorney

Cancer misdiagnosis is one of the most serious types of medical malpractice that a doctor can commit. The key in treating cancer and having the best opportunity of survival is to begin receiving treatment as early as possible. When a doctor delays in diagnosing or completely misdiagnosis cancer, a patient may suffer devastating side effects, may lose precious years or may be denied the prospect of surviving at all.

Causes of Failure to Diagnose Cancer / Cancer Misdiagnosis

Cancer misdiagnosis is a type of medical malpractice that involves a doctor's failure to recognize cancer in a patient. There are various reasons that cancer misdiagnosis may occur. A doctor may fail to order appropriate testing, may misunderstand the nature of a patient's complaints, may misinterpret test results, may fail to consider a history of cancer in a patient or may fail to order routine testing appropriate for the patient's age and medical history.

In these and similar cases, the patient may have grounds to sue for financial compensation. This can help with medical bills and may also offer the patient the opportunity to recover money for emotional damages, pain and suffering and loss of wages.
