A cancerous tumor that is not detected and treated early can advance and metastasize very quickly, severely reducing the patient's chances of making a full recovery. That is why anyone who has symptoms or risk factors associated with cancer should be screened promptly.

Did Your Condition Get Worse Because of Malpractice?
Most cancer-related medical malpractice claims are based on a doctor's misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of cancer. Doctors can also commit malpractice when they fail to advise patients who have been diagnosed with cancer on the available treatment options.
Our firm has extensive experience pursuing malpractice claims against doctors and other medical professionals whose negligence has left our clients untreated or improperly treated for a wide range of cancers, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Breast cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Brain cancer
- Lung cancer
- Skin cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Colon cancer
- Bone cancer
- Ovarian cancer
Doctors are professionally responsible for offering their patients cancer screening based on their age, personal history, family history, exposure to carcinogens and other factors. Patients should also be screened when they or their doctors detect growths that may be cancerous.
