Was There A Delay In Diagnosing Your Colorectal Cancer?
Colorectal, or colon cancer, is one of the most common forms of cancer. It is also the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths, behind lung cancer. Treatment for colon cancer can be effective when it is diagnosed early. There are numerous screens and tests that can find colon, rectal or anal cancer in its early stages. Doctors must order the appropriate tests and must interpret test results correctly. The failure to do so can lead to the advance of your cancer. This can lead to serious illness or even death.
If you have suffered due to the misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis for colon cancer, you may have a medical malpractice case action against the people responsible. The law firm of Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., is located in Cleveland and represents injured people throughout northeastern Ohio and beyond.
Fighting For Full Compensation After Medical Negligence
When colon cancer is not discovered early on, it can require aggressive surgeries to treat the cancer, including the removal of the colon. Even if the operation is ultimately successful, the removal of the colon will require the patient to wear a colostomy bag, which can create many additional problems in a person’s life. This often could have been avoided had the cancer been found in its early stages.
