Pursuing Claims for Delayed Diagnosis of Tumors

Brain cancer is an extremely serious illness. While many brain tumors can be removed, allowing many patients to make a full recovery, untreated brain cancers can do permanent brain damage and metastasize, spreading to other regions of the body.

At the law firm of DeLuca & Weizenbaum in Providence, Rhode Island, our experienced medical malpractice attorneys help patients and their families pursue claims for failure to diagnose brain cancer. To schedule a free consultation with a dedicated trial lawyer, contact us today.

Should Your Doctor Have Ordered a Brain Scan?

There are several signs and symptoms that can indicate to a trained medical professional that someone is experiencing pressure on the brain that may be caused by a brain tumor. The following are among the conditions that may indicate the presence of brain cancer:

  • Confusion and memory issues
  • Changes in eyesight
  • Persistent headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Epileptic seizures with no history of epilepsy

When a patient reports any of these conditions to a doctor and it cannot be explained by any other illness, the doctor should probably order radiological imaging to determine whether the patient has a growth in the brain. If there is a growth, the next step is generally a biopsy.

Did Your Cancer Get Worse Due to the Delay?

Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of brain cancer can make it more difficult to effectively treat the cancer once it is eventually detected and may harm the patient's chances of making a full recovery. Our attorneys are experienced at pursuing malpractice claims for untreated cancer.

The lawyers and nurses at our firm work with cutting-edge technology and credible experts to document the harm done to our clients by delays in diagnosis. Don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your potential claim. You will not pay any fees unless we help you win compensation.
