Cancer Misdiagnosis

 

Delayed Diagnosis of Cancer

Bell Lax has specialist Medical Negligence experts with extensive experience and knowledge on running these tragic and fatal claims.  We fight hard for our clients and are by their side every step of the way.  These claims need a fighting spirit, a dedicated Solicitor and sensitivity.  

We have acted for clients whose late diagnosis has led to fatality.  The psychological stress and pressure this puts on the individual and their families is horrendous.  From receiving the worse news anyone could hear and in some cases receiving an incorrect diagnosis, experts are needed to guide you and your family through this.

Types of cancer which are often misdiagnosed include:-

  • Breast (female and male)
  • Cervical
  • Testicular
  • Prostate
  • Bowel 
  • Bladder
  • Lung
  • Lymphoma
  • Skin Cancer (Melanoma)
  • Kidney
  • Pancreatic/Stomach
  • Thyriod
  • Oral

Claims arise due to the failure to spot the signs early enough, and your GP may decide to give medical treatment for a differnet illness. For example, early signs of bowel cancer, and the GP treats for IBS or even piles.  By the time the correct treatment has begun it can be too late.  An early diagnosis can prevent certain types of cancer from spreading.  Inadequate investigation at the start of the illness is a main cause of medical misdiagnosis.

Claims also arise when surgeons fail to remove all the tumour, allowing malignant cells to spread.

Cancer screening is the most effective way to spot early signs of the disease, failures to spot early signs is usually down to the misinterpretation by pathologists, from blood, stool and urine samples, smear tests, to x-rays scans,mammograms.
