CINCINNATI CANCER MISDIAGNOSIS ATTORNEY
MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEYS IN OHIO
Since cancer is considered the leading cause of death worldwide, a great
amount of medical malpractice lawsuits derive from misdiagnosis or delayed
diagnosis. According to American Cancer Society, 10 to 20 percent of all
cancer cases are misdiagnosed. It is estimated that 40,000 cancer patients
pass away annually as a result of
misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis. Failure to properly diagnose delays necessary treatment,
which can lead to more therapy, a new set of problems, and a lowered chance
of treatment success.
Commonly misdiagnosed cancers include:
- Breast cancer – failure to screen or accurately assess mammograms
- Cervical cancer – failure to order a biopsy or misread Pap smear tests
- Colon cancer – failure to conduct routine screenings
- Prostate cancer – failure to conduct timely digital rectal exams
and PSA blood tests
- Skin cancer – failure to identify skin abnormalities and conduct

LET US FIGHT FOR YOU
The law does not hold doctors solely accountable for all diagnostic errors.
A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis is not enough to prove negligence
occurred. It’s imperative to evaluate the steps the medical professional
took when determining a diagnosis, such as the “differential diagnosis”
method the doctor used when misdiagnosis occurred.
Several ways medical professionals can make diagnostic mistakes include:
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose a related disease
- Failure to diagnose an unrelated disease
- Failure to recognize complications
- Missed diagnosis
- Wrong diagnosis
In some circumstances, doctors fail to accurately diagnose a condition
because they had relied on incorrect results from laboratory tests, radiology
films, or other types of examinations. This can occur due to faulty diagnostic
equipment or human error. The patient must also prove that the doctor’s
negligent misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
caused their injury or hindered their progress.
