Misdiagnosis of Cervical Cancer
When medical professionals misdiagnose cervical cancer, the treatment plans available to their patients typically become significantly more limited than they otherwise would be. Sadly, medical professionals misdiagnose cervical cancer with a disturbing regularity in Massachusetts and, more widely, in the United States. Typically, misdiagnosis and late diagnosis are the result of a physician’s incorrect interpretation of the symptoms his or her patient has experienced. Under these circumstances, then, it may be possible to hold your physician financially responsible for their actions or inaction.
Symptoms of Cervical Cancer
Though the symptoms most closely associated with cervical cancer are well known, many physicians misinterpret these symptoms and fail to order a range of critical diagnostic tests. With that in mind, the symptoms that are most indicative of the possibility of cervical cancer include:
- Pelvic pain
- Pain during intercourse
- Watery, bloody vaginal discharge
If your physician failed to properly and promptly diagnose your or your loved one’s cervical cancer, it may be possible to hold your physician financially responsible for his or her negligence. A Massachusetts legal team can put significant resources and experience to work on your behalf throughout this process.
