Cancer diagnosis can have devastating effects for you and your family. But this can be made worse when it is misdiagnosed by your healthcare provider, especially as cancer is a time-bound ailment. The longer cancer diagnosis and treatment is delayed, the more threatening it becomes and the more likely it is to spread to the body’s other organs. If you have been a victim of Cancer Misdiagnosis, you can make a claim for compensation.

What is Cancer Misdiagnosis?

If a patient has cancer and a qualified medical expert has delivered a wrong diagnosis, this is known as cancer misdiagnosis. This could mean that they either diagnose your cancer as a different ailment or completely miss the symptoms.
Medical professionals owe their patients a duty of care and must employ different diagnostic measures to identify a patient’s condition and rule out potentially life-threatening illnesses. If a medical professional fails to conduct appropriate tests or consult with specialists for further investigation of a condition, they may mistakenly deliver a wrong diagnosis and you may be entitled to a medical negligence claims.
