WHAT IS A CANCER MISDIAGNOSIS?
Even with medical advancements, cancerous tumors can be missed despite the use of multiple blood tests and MRIs. A cancer patient’s best chance for survival relies on catching cancer in it’s earliest stages, but far too often we see misdiagnoses or late diagnoses that can limit a patient’s treatment options and potentially have fatal consequences. When there are delays in the diagnosing process, the patients’ survival chances dip and treatment options are limited to more rigorous treatment, also lowering the chances of the cancer being completely eliminated. If cancer is misdiagnosed, it may be a case of medical malpractice. If so, our experienced Philadelphia cancer misdiagnosis attorneys at Thistle Law can help you pursue a medical negligence lawsuit and compensation.

It is important to know that there are numerous different types of misdiagnosis cases because cancer can affect any organ in the body. Each type of cancer has a different diagnosis process, prognosis, and treatment options.
When starting a misdiagnosis suit the defendant needs to prove the following:
- The doctor owed you a duty of care (you were a patient)
- The doctor failed to act as a reasonable medical professional in relation to your diagnosis
- You suffered as a result of the delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer; and
- The doctor’s actions or failure to act was the most probable cause of your injuries or suffering
