Sacramento Failure To Diagnose Cancer Lawyer
It’s rare to encounter a person who has not been affected by cancer in one form or another. Whether he or she has had a personal diagnosis or even cancer scare, or has a friend or family member affected by the disease, cancer is quite literally everywhere. Cancer is not a simple disease and not one to be taken lightly. It spreads quickly, overtaking one organ and then another with no end in sight.
Cancer prevalence means the number of individuals alive who have ever received a cancer diagnosis. This includes people diagnosed with cancer in the past along with people who have recently been diagnosed. Some of the most prevalent cancers in the United States according to the American Cancer Society are:
- Prostate Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Colon and Rectum
- Uterine Corpus
- Urinary Bladder

Failing to diagnose a common cold is one thing, but failing to diagnose cancer has monumental consequences. One cannot simply go to the drug store for a remedy. Once it exists, it grows, and spreads and becomes much more difficult to treat and remove. Everyday individuals depend on the expertise of physicians to detect and diagnose something as complex as cancer.
Did your doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer or melanoma have disastrous consequences? Perhaps you complained of symptoms many months ago, but for some reason, you did not get treatment at that time.
What could go wrong?
Doctors are human and don’t get things right 100 percent of the time, but not all medical cases have life altering consequences like the failure to diagnose cancer. What could have possibly gone wrong for a skilled doctor to miss something as significant as cancer? There are many things, for example:
- Your doctor may have dismissed your concerns.
- Lab tests could have been wrong after technicians switched two patients’ samples.
- Laboratory results indicating probable cancer may have been sent back to your doctor’s office, but then sat unevaluated in your file for weeks or months.
- Your case may have simply fallen through the cracks due to communication failures between nurses, doctors, lab technicians and image specialists.
