Columbus Prostate Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers to affect men. It’s also one of the most treatable. When properly diagnosed at the early stages, the survival rate is extremely high. Doctors should know the wide range of tests to be administered to determine if a patient has prostate cancer. This may include the Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test.
When a doctor fails to order the right tests or unreasonably makes the wrong diagnosis, patients are put in danger. When people are injured as a result of this negligence, it is important that the responsible physician is held accountable and that people are compensated as fairly as possible.
