Failure To Diagnose Cancer
When a physician fails to diagnose cancer, the consequences can be disastrous. A delayed medical diagnosis can mean a delay in treatment or no treatment at all. Many cancers can be cured if caught early enough. When you have a negative outcome because cancer was not diagnosed properly, it is important to know that you have legal recourse.

Our Legal Experience And Medical Knowledge Are Benefits To Our Clients
At the Tinsman & Sciano, Inc., we help people who have suffered further illness and the families of those who died because of a failure to diagnose cancer. Founding attorney Jeffrey C. Anderson has been practicing law for more than 35 years. He also has a medical background and understands the medical issues involved. This combination of medical knowledge and legal experience is very valuable to our clients.
Common Cancers That Are Often Not Diagnosed
We have handled many cases arising from a failure to diagnose colon cancer, lung cancer and breast cancer. Moreover, there are tumors that are not cancerous but can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated in time. Because doctors have much more precise and non-invasive ways of identifying cancer and tumors, it is shocking when medical professionals still fail to make the correct medical diagnosis and the cancer is fatal.
Accurate Tests Are Available — Doctors Should Use Them
Diagnostic mistakes often happen because doctors fail to order the correct tests. Even when the correct test is ordered, doctors sometimes fail to interpret the results properly. When these failures lead to a decline in the patient’s condition or his or her death, the victim or the victim’s family needs to be aware of the options for holding the medical provider accountable and obtaining the maximum available compensation.
