Colon cancer is one of the most common types of cancer, with more than 100,000 new cases diagnosed each year. With early screenings, it is often possible to detect colon cancer before symptoms develop. When this form of cancer is allowed to develop, however, the results are often tragic.
At Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, we represent people who have suffered due to the misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis of colon cancer. Our experienced team of medical negligence attorneys have the legal and medical knowledge necessary to achieve results for our clients.
Misdiagnosis of Colon Cancer
There are a number of ways in which medical malpractice can lead to the misdiagnosis of colon cancer. In some cases, the treating physician fails to recognize the symptoms of colon cancer, or fails to order necessary tests.
The symptoms of colon cancer may also be confused with symptoms of a less severe medical condition. Either scenario leads to a delay in diagnosis, which gives the cancer the time it needs to metastasize and become untreatable.
When patients do not receive the care they need, it can significantly decrease their chance of survival.
