Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

Cancer is often a devastating illness, both for the patient and the family.

Some forms of cancer do not respond well to treatment, while others, if caught early enough, can be treated and cured. When these types, such as breast cancer or colon cancer, are not discovered in a timely manner due to medical negligence, treatment that could have resulted in a favorable outcome may no longer be possible. The result may be the untimely death of a loved one.

Misdiagnosis

Signs and symptoms of cancer may be ignored or misinterpreted by a health care provider. If the underlying cancer is not promptly diagnosed and treated, it may grow and spread until it is simply too late. Poor testing procedures, incorrectly interpreting test results, or failing to order appropriate tests altogether can also lead to a misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis of cancer. Conversely, when an illness is wrongly diagnosed as cancer, a patient can undergo serious treatment that is unnecessary.
