Arlington Heights Injury Attorney for Cancer Delayed Diagnosis

Cancer Misdiagnosis personal injury lawyer Schaumburg

Medical Malpractice Lawyer for Victims of Cancer Misdiagnosis in Cook County and Lake County 

A cancer diagnosis is difficult to accept. The diagnosis not only changes your life in an instant but takes a toll on one's physical and emotional health. That is why men, women, and children are often relieved when cancer is suspected, but a physician rules out the deadly illness.

Unfortunately, in some cases, cancer is ruled out prematurely. Victims are often devastated when they are made aware of the mistake. Medical mishaps that result in a misdiagnosis are a form of negligence that amounts to malpractice. If you or your loved one has been told that cancer did not exist, when it was, in fact, present, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact an experienced attorney at Newland & Newland, LLP today.

Breast Cancer Misdiagnosis

A breast cancer mistake has damaging consequences, some of which cannot be undone. However, a misdiagnosis occurs when proper diagnostic tools are not used or follow-up procedures are not in place. There are several tests that can be done to screen for breast cancer. These tests include mammograms, MRIs, and ultrasounds. While all of these tests are beneficial, additional measures must be taken if an abnormality is found. A biopsy should be done to conclusively determine if abnormal cells are cancerous. If a biopsy was not completed or the results of the test were interpreted incorrectly and additional harm was caused, you or your loved one may be entitled to compensation.

Failure to Treat Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among men and causes the untimely death of hundreds of thousands of men each year. Prostate cancer is treatable but is often found too late, beyond the point at which the disease and its symptoms could have been more manageable. As prostate cancer progresses through its stages, the cancer becomes more difficult to treat. If a medical provider has taken away your fighting chance, you deserve compensation for your injuries.

Brain Tumors

Having one or more brain tumors is concerning because it is a complicated illness that often progresses quickly. The tumors can start in one's brain tissue or start in another part of the body and spread to the brain. It can go undetected for weeks or months, as brain tumors require accurate interpretation since they can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).
