Pursuing Malpractice Claims for Delayed Treatment

Colon cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States, and when it is allowed to progress beyond the initial stages, it is also one of the most potentially fatal. Early diagnosis and treatment of colon cancer can make a major difference to patients' recovery.

At the law firm of DeLuca & Weizenbaum in Providence, our experienced Rhode Island colon cancer misdiagnosis lawyers help patients and their families pursue medical malpractice claims for delays in diagnosis. To schedule a free consultation, contact us today.

Recognizing When Doctors Are Expected to Order Tests

Anyone who comes to a doctor with potential symptoms of colon cancer — including blood in the stool and changes in bowel habits — should be given the appropriate tests. Even people who do not have any symptoms should be screened based on their age and risk factors.

Currently, the medical consensus is that everyone should get a colonoscopy at the age of 50 and should be scheduled for additional screening at regular intervals.

People with a family or personal history of colon or stomach cancer should be screened earlier and more frequently. Any abnormal growth — such as a polyp or lesion — that is detected during a colonoscopy should be biopsied in order to determine whether it is cancerous.

Identifying the Consequences of Delayed Diagnosis

Any delay in diagnosing and treating colon cancer can significantly harm the patient's chances of making a full recovery. Colon cancer that goes untreated can become resistant to treatment and metastasize, spreading to other organs of the body.

Our attorneys and nurses are experienced at documenting the consequences of colon cancer misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis. We work with cutting-edge technology and credible experts to support our clients' claims at trial when necessary.

If your condition has gotten worse or you have lost a loved one due to a doctor's failure to diagnose colon cancer, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss whether you have a medical malpractice claim. We will not charge you any fees unless we help you obtain money damages.
