Why it is Important to Get an Early Cancer Diagnosis

The word “Cancer” strikes fear.   The sooner you are diagnosed with cancer, a mass, carcinoma or a tumor, the more quickly you can undergo treatments to try and halt or stop the cancer from spreading. Many times, if there is a delay in this diagnosis, it allows the disease to grow, spread, or metastasize to other parts of your body. A delay in diagnosing or treating cancer can mean the difference between a minor surgery to remove a small malignant growth and major surgery to remove a large tumor and other tissue. A delay in the diagnosis and management of cancer can literally mean the difference between life and death. A delay in diagnosis and management can significantly reduce your survival rate and subject you to harsh chemotherapy and radiation treatments that you might not have needed had the cancer been detected earlier.

The Beasley Firm and its experienced trial lawyers have resolved innumerable cases for clients who have been the unfortunate victims of negligent medical care that resulted in delayed recognition and management of otherwise treatable cancers.

Common Reasons for a Failure to Diagnose Cancer

While there is no excuse for a misdiagnosis or completely missed diagnosis of cancer, there are common underlying reasons that many doctors or health care professionals fail to properly diagnose patients.

Some of the reasons for a delay in diagnosing or treating cancer include:

  • A failure to listen to the patients complaints and symptoms
  • A failure to perform tumor marker testing such as a PSA, PAP smear, mammogram, CA-125 or CEA
  • A failure to consult with or refer the patient to an oncologist or doctor who specialized in cancer
  • A failure to order additional tests such as a biopsy, CT scan, MRI, PET scan or ultrasound
  • A failure to properly read pathology slides or x-rays
  • A failure to completely clear margins when the original tumor was removed, leaving some of the cancer or tumor behind
  • A failure to properly monitor or perform the proper surveillance testing after completion of radiation or chemotherapy treatments

Our team of attorneys and medical experts tirelessly investigate all circumstances surrounding your case to determine why your physician or doctor failed to diagnose your cancer earlier on.
