Delay or Failure to Timely Diagnose Cancer and Other Diseases

A physician's failure to diagnose is the most common allegation in medical malpractice lawsuits. Learning that you have incurable cancer or another serious disease is heartbreaking, but when the diagnosis could and should have been made months or years earlier, your available treatment options can be limited which is devastating.  There are some diseases that are difficult to diagnose even if a doctor is acting within the routine standard of care, but doctors have a duty to recognize the signs and symptoms of certain common medical conditions.

Examples of medical malpractice lawsuits resulting from a physician's error, misdiagnosis, or failure to diagnose a medical condition include some of the following:

    • Failure to diagnose cancer
    • Failure to diagnose a heart attack
    • Failure to diagnose a pulmonary embolism
    • Failure to diagnose a ruptured appendix
