Columbus Pancreatic Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney
Accuracy and timeliness are critical in pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Treatment cannot be administered until there is a proper diagnosis. This is particularly true of pancreatic cancer — it rarely shows symptoms until advanced stages. Because of this, misdiagnosis or failed diagnosis can be particularly damaging.
Contact us if you believe your physician failed to diagnose pancreatic cancer when it was treatable, or misdiagnosed it as another condition.
