Delay in Diagnosing Blood Clots

An ischemic (lacking blood flow) limb is a true medical emergency. Delay in treating a blood clot often results in amputation of fingers, toes, arms or legs. Once blood flow stops, there is a limited window of opportunity within which to restore the flow of blood. Left untreated, necrosis (death) of the body part lacking…Read More

New Jersey Medical Malpractice Lawyers Representing Clients in Delayed Diagnosis of Cancer Cases

Advances in medicine have given hope to cancer patients. Some cancers that were once incurable may now be treated effectively if caught early. Even when a cure is not possible, early detection may expand treatment options or improve a patient’s quality of life.

When New Jersey Doctors Fail to Diagnose Cancer

Doctors who fail to diagnose cancer in a timely manner deprive cancer patients of treatment options that might have saved or extended their lives. Delayed diagnosis of cancer can rob you of:

  • More time to enjoy life
  • Less radical treatment options
  • Less pain and suffering
  • A better long-term prognosis

Led by medical malpractice attorney Roy J. Konray, the medical malpractice attorneys at Team Law represent people in New Jersey who suffered harm due to the delayed diagnosis of cancer. We also represent the family members of those who died because doctors failed to diagnose cancer in a timely manner.

If you or a family member were harmed because of a misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis of cancer, please contact Team Law to discuss your case. We offer a free initial consultation and case evaluation.

Sadly, a delayed diagnosis does not affect treatment plans or outcomes in some devastating types of cancer. Pancreatic cancer, for example, has the worst five-year survival rate of any form of cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute. Even with an early diagnosis, few options are available.

Early Detection Makes a Difference in Some Cases

We represent clients who would have experienced a significantly different outcome had their doctors diagnosed cancer earlier. These types of cases include:

  • Melanoma: Melanoma is aggressive cancer but caught early, the survival statistics for a person with melanoma are excellent. Even a short delay in diagnosis can turn a treatable condition into a terrible, metastatic disease.
  • Breast cancer: Early diagnosis of breast cancer can be lifesaving. It can also result in less disfiguring surgery and more tolerable post-surgical treatment. Cancer can spread throughout the body if breast cancer is not timely and correctly diagnosed.
  • Cervical cancer: The Pap smear is perhaps the most successful cancer screening test in the world, yet mistakes that delay diagnosis of cervical cancer are still far too common. Mistakes in analyzing the samples and failure to follow established procedure can needlessly put lives at risk.
  • Uterine cancer: Misdiagnosing symptoms of uterine cancer can delay diagnosis of this aggressive cancer and cost a patient her life.
