Schaumburg Lawyer for Colon Cancer Misdiagnosis

Medical Malpractice Attorney Serving Rolling Meadows, Cook County and Lake County

Colon cancer is a cancer of the large intestine that impacts thousands of people on an annual basis. Typically, colon cancer does not begin as cancer at all. Instead, it begins as non-cancerous masses on one's intestines. Over time, the masses turn cancerous and cause a variety of problems that impact the health, safety, and well-being of the individual affected by the illness. Early detection of colon cancer is important as this will result in the most favorable treatment options and chances for recovery. If your colon cancer was misdiagnosed or treatment was not prompt and effective, you may be entitled to compensation for any harm it caused you. Contact the attorneys at Newland & Newland, LLP to help determine your rights to relief.

Importance of Second Opinions

If you or your loved one is experiencing any of the following symptoms, you could be suffering from colon cancer:

  • Inability to pass bowel movements due to constipation
  • Loosening of the stool related to diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Unrelieved feelings after bowel movements
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Bleeding in the stool
  • Dark colored stool as a result of bleeding in the intestines

If you have any of these conditions, it may not be a cause for concern as many individuals have occasional minor intestinal issues. However, if your problems are persistent and you are experiencing multiple symptoms, they could be key indicators of colon cancer and you should see a physician. If you feel like the medical attention you received was not adequate, it is important to take your health into your own hands and seek a second opinion from another doctor.
