Cancer Claims

Cancer Claims

It is well known that early diagnosis of cancer greatly increases the chances of successful treatment as cancer develops through various stages. Where opportunities for a correct diagnosis are missed and the condition has developed to a more advanced stage the delay may have made a difference to the outcome of treatment and the effect of this could be extremely serious, although a delay of a few months does not normally make a difference. A delayed diagnosis could be because, for example:

  • An illness was missed or left undiagnosed
  • A wrong diagnosis was made about an illness
  • Failed to recognise the cancer symptoms
  • Failed to carry out adequate tests such as scan, X-rays, blood tests, etc
  • Missing the vital signs of cancer, for example, while examining tissue under a microscope
  • Failure to refer for specialist treatment
