A cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim can result from one of two negligent actions by your doctor. Either they have diagnosed you as having cancer, and subsequently you have discovered that it was in error or, more seriously, misdiagnosed your cancer as some other complaint.
Whereas the first incident is a major psychological shock, there is an element of relief to find out you may not be as ill as you were led to believe you were. Nonetheless you may have already made arrangements to give up your job or change your lifestyle to spend more time with your family and attend hospital appointments.
To have initially have consulted a doctor when you felt ill or discovered a lump, and be told that there was nothing to worry about, when there was a malignant growth developing inside of you, is an exceptionally distressing event.
Early diagnosis of cancer is essential to give the sufferer the best chance of overcoming it, and for a doctor to negligently declare that your health is not in danger is a cause to make a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim.
