Columbus Delayed Cancer Diagnosis Attorney

When doctors are diligent, attentive and properly trained, they should be able to look at various symptoms and order correct and timely tests. They should be able to make an informed and accurate diagnosis. When they are negligent and do not conduct the proper tests, or fail to ask the right questions, a proper diagnosis may be delayed or even missed.

A timely diagnosis is absolutely critical, particularly with cancer. Doctors must catch certain cancers as soon as possible in order to cure them or prevent spreading, whereas others may have slow onsets. As time passes, however, nearly any cancer can become fatal.

If your physician delayed or missed a diagnosis of cancer due to negligence, it is important that you and your loved ones are properly compensated.
