Delayed cancer diagnosis means patients have fewer treatment options available to them. By the time the cancer is found, it may be too late for potentially life-saving surgeries, chemotherapy or radiation. Cancer misdiagnosis affects the whole family, not just the patient. Watching a loved one suffer due to a missed or delayed diagnosis can be heartbreaking and knowing that treatment could have been administered earlier is devastating. If you lost a loved one due to cancer misdiagnosis, you could be eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim, where you might need the aid of an experienced wrongful cancer diagnosis lawyer.
