The cost of a missed cancer diagnosis is emotional and financial

Cancer is a very invasive disease that can easily overtake a person's body. While some cancers spread slowly, other cancers spread very rapidly. In many cases, starting treatment for the cancer as early as possible has an impact on the patient's prognosis. When a patient goes to the doctor with symptoms that stem from cancer, a prompt diagnosis is crucial. When a doctor doesn't make the correct diagnosis, it is possible that the cancer will spread to the point of being considered untreated and terminal.

When it comes to treating cancer, there are actually only a few types of treatments. Chemotherapy and radiation are the two most common treatments for cancer as long as the cancer is treatable. When cancer is considered untreatable, palliative care is often the only treatment possible.

We understand how taxing it is for you to go through cancer treatment. We also know how difficult it is for people to see their loved one go through those treatments. The effects of the treatments, as well as the fact that the treatments are likely worse since the cancer was left unchecked because of a missed diagnosis, are some reasons why you might opt to seek compensation for your injuries.

Another reason is the cost of cancer treatments. Chemotherapy, radiation, nursing care, personal care assistance, and other similar costs all come together to place a financial strain on you. If you seek compensation and are awarded compensation, that money can go toward helping you to get the care you need without having to sacrifice the necessities of life.
