Misdiagnosed Cancer

Although there are many types of cancer that are difficult to diagnose, mistakes can and do happen. The symptoms of lung cancer, for example, aren’t dissimilar to other illnesses because some of the symptoms of the condition, such as breathlessness, tiredness and a persistent cough, are quite vague. However, if your doctor suspects that the symptoms you are suffering could be cancer and they don’t refer you on for further testing then you could have a claim for medical negligence.

In simple terms, a misdiagnosis is an error or failure, which occurs during the process of diagnosing a patient with an illness or other medical condition.
