When Is it Considered Misdiagnosis?

It can be difficult to determine when misdiagnosis is considered medical malpractice. Did the doctor do everything they could? Was there some type of miscommunication or mistake in the tests? Some common examples of doctor or medical negligence include:

  • Ignored symptoms indicating early stages of cancer
  • Failure to do a blood test, X-ray, CT scan, or other important tests
  • Missed symptoms or incorrectly-assessed test results

Misdiagnosis of cancer could fall on the doctor, the hospital, the radiologist, or a number of other parties. Diseases like breast cancer, prostate cancer, brain cancer, liver cancer, or even skin cancer can all be diagnosed in their early stages when a doctor or oncologist remains alert and attentive. There is no excuse for a failure to properly diagnose common cancer symptoms that all medical professionals should be familiar with.

If you lost a loved one or suffered in any way due to a cancer misdiagnosis, our Nashville cancer misdiagnosis lawyers at Kinnard Law can help. Call (615) 933-2893.
