Failure to Diagnose Skin Cancer

The treatment of cancer, including skin cancer, needs to begin as soon as possible to be the most effective. This also necessitates a timely, correct diagnosis. Delays in recognizing the symptoms of skin cancer can result in cells metastasizing throughout the region, often resulting in treatment with radical surgical and possible death. The failure to properly evaluate a biopsy or pathology report, or recognize other symptoms, may be considered medical negligence.

We Understand the Complex Medical Issues and Standards for Treatment

Skin cancer, including melanoma, is highly curable if it is diagnosed in its early stages. If a diagnosis is made late, it may result in complications, additional procedures or death in the worst cases. Skin cancer affects people of all ages, not only the elderly.

Even if the cancerous legion is removed, the cancer may continue to spread if removal is not done correctly. Sometimes, people whose skin cancer is diagnosed in a timely manner still suffer extensive harm because the cancer is not treated effectively and appropriately.
