Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers in St Helens
The majority of people are happy with the cancer treatment and care that they receive from professionals, at what can be, an extremely distressing time. However, unfortunately, sometimes mistakes are made causing unnecessary stress on both the individual receiving treatment and their loved ones.
Mistakes Made By Professionals Result In Cancer Treatment Negligence
Common mistakes made by professionals that result in cancer treatment negligence include lost records, failing to realise the importance of a patient’s complaints, not acting quickly enough to test results, not carrying out biopsies, treating a patient inappropriately, misreading x-rays, inaccurate test results, administering the wrong medication, or failing to refer a patient to a specialist.
There have also been cancer treatment cases where patients have been diagnosed with cancer only to find out that they are not suffering from it at all.
