Columbus Lung Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney

Lung cancer is a serious and sometimes fatal condition — but it need not be fatal if it is caught and treated early enough. The best way to beat lung cancer is to get an accurate and early diagnosis so that doctors can administer the most effective treatments. When medical professionals do not properly diagnose this type of cancer, the results can be catastrophic.

There are telltale signs and symptoms for which doctors should be on the lookout, particularly in high-risk groups. These symptoms include:

  • Persistent coughing with no known cause
  • A history of smoking or secondhand smoke exposure
  • A history of exposure to asbestos and other chemical irritants

If you or a loved one has been misdiagnosed or a physician failed to make a timely diagnosis of lung cancer, contact an attorney who understands medical malpractice to find out if you have been the victim of negligent medical care.
