Frequently Misdiagnosed Cancers

Various types of cancers share symptoms with other medical conditions. Fatigue, unexplained weight loss, nausea, swelling, headaches, and fevers may all suggest cancer – or something entirely different. A medical professional should be able to bring clarity to your situation and produce an accurate diagnosis, but that is not always what happens.

Doctors in the United States frequently misdiagnose:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Skin cancer

Doctors often misdiagnose cancer because:

  • They fail to order and comprehensively review the results of all relevant tests
  • They are dismissive of symptoms, deciding they are the result of less-serious ailments
  • They fail to review their patients’ complete medical histories, which may suggest a heightened risk for cancer

What Should I Do If I Believe I Am a Victim of Cancer Misdiagnosis?

Your health is paramount, so if you suspect you did not receive an accurate diagnosis, you should immediately discuss your concerns with your doctor. Reiterate your symptoms, explain that the current treatment plan is not working, and ask for all pertinent tests to be run. If your doctor is not cooperative, consider getting a second opinion as soon as possible. 

If any medical professional diagnoses you with cancer, you may have a medical malpractice case if you suffered harm as a result of the initial misdiagnosis. Our Baltimore cancer misdiagnosis attorneys can review your circumstances and walk you through your legal options.

Is There A Deadline To Make A Cancer Misdiagnosis Claim?

You will only have five years from the date of the initial misdiagnosis or three years from the date of the date you discovered the misdiagnosis to file a lawsuit. Should a cancer misdiagnosis result in the death of a loved one, you will have three years from the date of their passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit. You will most likely be unable to recover any damages if you miss the applicable deadline.

In a cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit, Miller Stern Lawyers will work to prove the following:

  • You and the misdiagnosing doctor had a doctor-patient relationship
  • The misdiagnosing doctor failed to provide an adequate level of care
  • This failure resulted in harm
  • The harm led to pain, suffering, and other financial losses

We will fight to recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Reductions in earning capacity
  • Physical pain and mental suffering

What Evidence Is Needed To Support A Cancer Misdiagnosis Claim?

To support a cancer misdiagnosis claim in Maryland, gathering several key types of evidence is essential. At the forefront are comprehensive medical records. This documentation should encompass your entire medical history, including diagnostic test results such as lab reports, biopsies, and imaging scans, as well as detailed treatment plans and notes from healthcare providers. These records play a critical role in constructing a timeline of events, pinpointing any discrepancies, and identifying errors that contributed to the misdiagnosis.

Securing a second medical opinion is another vital step. This process entails consulting with an independent healthcare professional who will thoroughly review your medical history and offer an objective evaluation of the initial diagnosis. Their expert assessment can be invaluable, providing strong evidence to illustrate that the standard of care was not met, whether through an incorrect or delayed diagnosis.

Expert witness testimony is another critical component. These witnesses, often medical professionals with expertise in oncology, can explain how the misdiagnosis deviated from accepted medical standards and the impact it has had on your health. Their insights help to establish causation and the connection between the misdiagnosis and your subsequent harm.

Moreover, meticulously making notes of your damages is crucial. Your notes should include evidence of economic losses like medical bills, lost income, and other out-of-pocket expenses. Equally important are non-economic damages, which encompass pain and suffering, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life. These can be substantiated through personal narratives, mental health assessments, and testimonies from family members and friends.
