Cervical & Uterine Cancer

Failure to Diagnose Cervical & Uterine Cancer

Cervical cancer, when detected in the early stages, usually responds well to treatment. The Pap-smear test is in an extremely reliable way to detect cervical cancer. Why then do so many women suffer from cervical or uterine cancer which advances until the opportunity for effective treatment has gone by? When a doctor was in a position to detect cervical cancer early and failed to do so, you and your family may be entitled to recover damages.

Not every failure to diagnose cancer constitutes medical malpractice. In fact many women delay a pelvic exam and Pap smear by choice. However a misread Pap smear, an improperly performed pelvic examination that resulted in delayed treatment of cervical cancer, or a misdiagnosis may constitute negligence on the part of the gynecologist, the laboratory pathologist, or the laboratory.
