Modern breakthroughs in medical science now allow medical caregivers to treat types of cancer that were at one time untreatable, including breast, lung, skin, and prostate cancer. A patient’s chances of recovery and survival often depend on early diagnoses and—even in more difficult cases—timely treatment can prolong a patient’s life and improve their quality of living.

Medical Negligence and Cancer
The failure to order the appropriate tests and recognize symptoms of cancer can threaten patients’ lives. When caregivers misread lab results or X-rays or when communication breaks down between medical professionals and departments, ineffective treatments may be pursued and important treatments may be delayed. When chemotherapy, radiation treatment, surgery, and other treatments are not undertaken in a timely manner, the patient’s cancer may spread and become terminal.
Medical negligence can include:
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to treat cancer
- Improper treatment
- Medication errors
- Lab errors
