Delayed Cervical Cancer Diagnosis
Being diagnosed with any form of cancer can be life changing but being diagnosed with cervical cancer is particularly concerning for women who were planning on having children. If cervical cancer is caught extremely early, treatment can take the form of a cone biopsy, in which the cancerous cells are removed without the need for radiotherapy. However, in most cases the cancer is more advanced than this when it is found so radiotherapy is needed, which stops the ovaries from working. Cervical cancer treatment is invasive and can be extremely extensive if the cancer is very advanced. Therefore, catching cervical cancer early is vital to give the patient the best chance of recovery and to reduce the extent of the treatment they have to undergo.
Delayed Cervical Cancer Diagnosis Claims
A delay in diagnosis becomes medical negligence when it is deemed that a reasonable body of medical professionals would have made the diagnosis, made a referral or offered a diagnostic test in a much shorter time scale than your own doctor did. Commonly, delayed cervical cancer diagnosis is due to a failure to provide smear tests to women suffering from some of the warning signs of cervical cancer. If you are deemed have received substandard treatment from the medical professionals dealing with your diagnosis, you will be able to get compensation. You will receive compensation for:
- Any treatment you had to undergo which would have been avoided if the cancer had been diagnosed early.
- Loss of earnings due to the treatment and due to inability to perform your previous job role.
- Monetary compensation for any care fees.
- Compensation for psychological damage.
A delayed diagnosis has knock on effects which cause stress for both the cancer sufferer and for their family and a specialist medical negligence solicitor will help you get the compensation you deserve.
