Massachusetts Cervical Cancer Attorneys
The cervix is an inch-long area that connects the vagina to the lower uterus, and cervical cancer is cancer that affects the cells located in the cervix. Like other types of cancer, this condition becomes increasingly deadly when left untreated, making it important for doctors to correctly assess women’s symptoms and test results when diagnosing cervical cancer.
Unfortunately, sometimes physicians ignore the key symptoms of cervical cancer, misdiagnosing the condition or delaying diagnosis. This in turn can lead to a dangerous delay in treatment. Women in Massachusetts who have been forced to endure additional pain and suffering due to a cervical cancer diagnosis error should talk to Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, today to learn more about their rights and options.
Signs of Cervical Cancer
When women notice the following signs, they should report them to their doctor right away, as they can indicate issues such as cervical cancer. Additionally, physicians should be able to recognize these symptoms as possible cervical cancer and order applicable diagnostic tests:
- Watery, sometimes bloody discharge from vagina
- Vaginal bleeding outside of menstrual period
- Pain during intercourse
- Pelvic pain
If your doctor has misread these symptoms or failed to perform tests that would determine whether you have cervical cancer, you might be a victim of medical malpractice in the form of cancer misdiagnosis.
