Harrisonburg Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorneys

Aggressively Pursuing Justice for Victims of Misdiagnosis

When a doctor diagnoses you with cancer, your life is changed forever. The news is devastating and life-altering. If you are like most people, you will undergo a whirlwind of emotions including fear, anger, and sadness. You will be overwhelmed with questions and concerns about not only your health but also your future. How will you pay for the cost of cancer treatment and will you be able to continue working?

Unfortunately, these questions are even more difficult to answer if you find out that you were misdiagnosed with cancer. A cancer misdiagnosis can have a lasting effect on your life. You may still need to undergo invasive and painful treatments, even though you do not have cancer. Your health may be compromised as a result of these treatments. Additionally, you will face financial hardships as you attempt to cover the cost of medical bills and other expenses related to your treatment.

If you have been misdiagnosed with cancer, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering due to medical malpractice. The team at Obenshain Law Group can help you fight for the justice you deserve. Contact us at (540) 318-7360 to schedule a case evaluation with our Harrisonburg cancer misdiagnosis lawyers.

What Is a Cancer Misdiagnosis?

A cancer misdiagnosis occurs when a doctor mistakenly identifies another condition as cancer, fails to detect existing cancer, or incorrectly diagnoses a healthy person with cancer. This can lead to serious harm to the patient's health and prognosis, unnecessary treatments, and delayed therapy.

What Are the Common Causes of a Cancer Misdiagnosis?

There are a number of factors that can contribute to a cancer misdiagnosis. Some of the most common causes of this type of misdiagnosis include:

  • Failure to order diagnostic tests: If your doctor fails to order diagnostic tests, they will not be able to make an accurate diagnosis. Diagnostic tests are crucial to the diagnostic process. Examples of diagnostic tests that are commonly used to diagnose cancer include mammograms, colonoscopies, and blood tests.
  • Failure to perform diagnostic tests properly: Even if a doctor orders diagnostic tests, they may not be able to make an accurate diagnosis if they do not perform the tests properly. For example, if a doctor fails to use the proper technique when performing a biopsy, they may not be able to make an accurate diagnosis.
  • Failure to interpret diagnostic tests properly: Even if a doctor performs diagnostic tests properly, they may not be able to make an accurate diagnosis if they do not interpret the results properly. Diagnostic tests are often complex and difficult to interpret. If a doctor does not have the necessary training or experience, they may not be able to accurately interpret the results of the tests.
  • Failure to recognize the symptoms of cancer: A doctor may also fail to diagnose you with cancer if they do not recognize the symptoms of the disease. All doctors should be familiar with the symptoms of cancer. If a doctor fails to recognize the symptoms of cancer, they may not recommend that you undergo diagnostic testing.

These are only a few factors that can contribute to a cancer misdiagnosis. If you've been misdiagnosed, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering.
