It’s a frightening statistic that, at some point in our lives, approximately one in three of us will need to be treated for some form of cancer. With consistent improvements in technology, there is far more likelihood of making a clear early diagnosis, and arranging suitable treatment to prevent it spreading. The majority of patients treated early will generally receive the all-clear within 12-18 months of a diagnosis, however, a small handful continue to suffer due to errors in the early stages.

The Importance of Early Cancer Detection and Diagnosis

It is a well known fact that, with early detection and treatment, most types of cancer are now treatable, or at least manageable in the early stages. And thanks to pioneering research, doctors now have a far better understanding of the symptoms synonymous with first stage cancer, improving the prognosis for full recovery and lowering mortality rates.

Doctors and oncologists have a legal duty of responsibility to patients, meaning if they reasonably suspect the symptoms presented to be indicative of cancer, they should refer the patient for further tests and treatment as soon as possible. Any failure, oversight, or delay in referring a patient could allow the disease to metastise, and render treatment of ineffective in the latter stages. Cancers of the colon, breast and pancreas, are particularly known to be aggressive and prone to metastising rapidly. While delays in diagnosis may not affect the patient straight away, they may impact the possibility of a complete recovery.

Cancer Misdiagnosis – What Can You Claim For?

Aside from the obvious mental anguish than delays in diagnosis can bring, there are other ramifications which can affect a patient’s health and quality of life. Cancer misdiagnosis claims are generally split into two separate claims for compensation; one for the physical and mental suffering caused to you, and the second for financial losses suffered as a result of the misdiagnosis. Entitlement to financial damages varies from case, but might include compensation for:

• Loss of earnings/ reduction in household income
• Costs associated with private medical treatment and care.
• Fees payable to a private care nurse who visits your home
