How Do I Know If A Doctor Failed To Diagnose Me?
A doctor has a standard of care to meet while treating you. He or she may be held liable for a failure to diagnose cervical cancer if you are showing symptoms of the disease, and he or she:
- Failed to read your medical history regarding cervical cancer in your family
- Neglected to perform a thorough Pap exam
- Failed to order the right diagnostic test to determine the type of cancer you had
- Misread your Pap smear results
With any disease, early detection leads to a greater chance of survival when the disease is properly diagnosed and treated. When a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cervical cancer leads to a death in your family, our experienced attorneys can discuss whether pursuing a wrongful death case is right for you. Please contact our medical malpractice lawyers to arrange for a complimentary case evaluation.
