Many hundreds of thousands of men receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer annually. As many as one in six men will develop prostate cancer within their lifetime. Although prostate cancer moves very quickly, a diagnosis does not have to mean a death sentence. Today, millions of men who once had prostate cancer now live cancer free. As is the case with any type of cancer, if prostate cancer is diagnosed in the early stages, the patient has significantly more options for treatment. Unfortunately, there are negligent medical personnel who miss crucial information or fail to perform necessary tasks that would have led them to the proper diagnosis in enough time to take swift action and save a patient’s life.
Are you suffering from advanced stages of prostate cancer you feel your doctor should have diagnosed much earlier on? Did a doctor diagnose you with prostate cancer after a previous doctor completely missed it? If you or a loved one is suffering from prostate cancer now, or unfortunately lost the battle against the terrible disease and it could have been prevented to an early diagnosis, you deserve excellent representation. Contact the attorneys at Teal & Montgomery in Santa Rosa for legal representation you can count on.
Diagnosing Prostate Cancer
In order to properly diagnose prostate cancer, physicians have to perform appropriate tests, like the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test. The PSA test as well as tests like as the Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) can help physicians pinpoint prostate cancer in the early stages. If a doctor does not conduct these tests properly or neglects to do them regardless of risk factors, patients may lose crucial time in their efforts to fight this terrible cancer. When patients lose this time, it can lead to medical procedures that become increasingly more invasive or ultimately lose their lives.
If your physician failed to diagnose prostate cancer in a timely fashion, or if you have lost a loved one due to prostate cancer, you may have a medical malpractice claim. With offices in Santa Rosa and Sacramento, the law firm of Teal & Montgomery helps people across Northern California who have been injured due to the negligence of a medical professional.
Medical Malpractice law requires guts and gusto. It is complex litigation that requires extensive knowledge about medicine, hospital protocol, insurance practices as well as the law and court systems. In order to have a legitimate medical malpractice case, you must prove a medical professional was negligent, their negligence caused you injury and that you have financial damages as a result of that negligence.
