Significant advances have been made over the years in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer; however, early diagnosis, and therefore prompt treatment, is important in providing the patient with the best chance of a cure.
Sadly there are cases where there has been a delay in diagnosing cancer or a misdiagnosis and in some cases compensation may be recoverable where there has been a delay or misdiagnosis.
Miss M was referred by her GP to the hospital, with a history of chest pain and anaemia. As part of the investigation she had a CT scan and bone scan. Miss M was told the scan showed she had liver and lung cancer, and that she only had a few months to live. Approximately 18 months later, she had a further CT scan following which Miss M was told there had been a misdiagnosis as she never had liver and lung cancer. Sadly the diagnosis of bowel cancer had been missed, with the results her prognosis had been seriously compromised. With our assistance her claim was settled in the sum of £40,000.

Miss D was referred to hospital with a lump in her right breast. She had a mammogram and ultrasound and was advised by the Consultant there was nothing to worry about. Miss D remained concerned and 8 months later was referred by her GP to a different hospital where they did a mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy. Miss D was advised the breast lump was malignant. Unfortunately, the failure to perform a biopsy resulted in an 8 month delay in diagnosis, which has prejudiced Miss D’s chance of a cure. With our assistance her claim has been settled in the sum of £15,000
