Finding Prostate Cancer Early
Prostate cancer is considered one of the most common cancers among men (second to skin cancer). While approximately 200,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, the majority can survive thanks to early detection and screenings. However, prostate cancer is still very serious and when a physician is negligent in your care, delaying your need for treatment after a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, your chance at survival is taken away from you. This is a mistake that is unforgivable.
Our attorneys will do everything we can to compensate for what is such a horrible mistake and possible medical malpractice. It is important to understand that not all prostate cancer cases involving a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis are due to medical negligence. The general idea is that medical malpractice has occurred when the physician (and there are often many medical professionals involved such as your primary care doctor, urologist, laboratory pathologist, radiologist, etc.) provided medical care that was below the accepted professional standards. We will thoroughly review all medical records, pathology reports and other evidence with medical experts who can determine who was negligent, why and how he or she was negligent.
