Breast Cancer Delayed Diagnosis
Breast cancer is one of the most commonly occurring cancers in the UK. It is also has one of the highest survival rates if it is caught and treated early. However, if it is diagnosed late and it is left to spread, life expectancy is shorter. If you have experienced a delay in breast cancer diagnosis which resulted from a doctor's failure to recognise the known symptoms of breast cancer and act accordingly, you may be able to make a medical negligence claim. A delay in breast cancer diagnosis can lead to more intense treatments, longer courses of radiotherapy and chemotherapy and increases the likelihood a mastectomy will be necessary. Furthermore, a delay in cancer diagnosis may decrease the sufferer's life expectancy. A delayed diagnosis is extremely upsetting for both the sufferer and the patient's family.
When Could A Delay In Breast Cancer Diagnosis Be Medical Negligence?
If you are thinking of making a delayed diagnosis claim for compensation for you physical or psychological suffering you are likely to have strong grounds for a successful claim if:
- Symptoms: you were presenting the common symptoms of breast cancer and your physician failed to recognise this. This type of claim would be successful if it was thought that most medical professionals would have made the diagnosis where your doctor failed to.
- Failure to refer: your GP failed to refer you to a specialist.
- Tests: If a medical professional did not refer you for the tests which were necessary to diagnose and treat your condition, did not follow up significant test results, or analysed test results incorrectly you may be able to claim.
If your delayed diagnosis is deemed to have left you victim to substandard medical care, you should be successful in your claim. We put our faith in our doctors to work to the best of their ability to help us recover when we are unwell; a doctor has failed to do their job efficiently if they have failed to diagnose a cancer as common as breast cancer within an acceptable timescale.
