Failure to Diagnose Cancer
Medical science has advanced so far in recent years that when diagnosed early, many types of cancer can be effectively treated. Advances in treating early-stage breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer and skin cancer have made these diseases survivable in many cases. Even in more serious types of the disease — such as ovarian cancer, testicular cancer and brain cancer — the chances of survival are greater than ever before.
Sadly, improper diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer can set back these advances. If your cancer progressed to an untreatable stage without detection due to a doctor's error, you have the right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. The Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman, P.C., home of MyPhillyLawyer, can help.

Improper Diagnosis & Treatment of Cancer
Even with some of the most difficult or aggressive cancers, there are treatment options that can prolong and increase the quality of a patient's life. All of the great tools of modern medicine, however, rely on experienced and competent doctors and oncologists to provide the proper diagnosis and administer appropriate treatment.
When physicians fail to properly diagnose cancer due to lab errors or simple carelessness, the disease often wins.
Claims for Failure to Monitor and Properly Treat Cancer
Even when a diagnosis is made, if necessary treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation are not performed, a cancer that at one time could have been easily treated can become terminal. In these cases, our lawyers call upon respected medical experts to support a wrongful death claim based on the likelihood of survival established in cases where proper treatment was administered.
