Failure To Diagnose Cancer Has Serious Consequences


When cancer is diagnosed in its early stages, the prognosis for beating it is positive. However, the longer cancer goes undetected, the higher the chances are that the patient will not survive the illness. Failure to diagnose cancer is a medical mistake that can be devastating to patients and their families. If you have lost a loved one because of a physician’s failure to diagnose cancer, consider The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C. for legal help.
