Was Your Loved One’s Cancer Misdiagnosed?

Advances in medicine allow high cure rates in many types of cancer, provided they are detected and treated early. Unfortunately, many cases are not diagnosed or treated until too late.

Sometimes, doctors or other medical personnel fail to order a test or investigate when presented with signs and symptoms suggesting the possibility of cancer. Other delayed diagnoses are attributable to a radiologist misinterpreting X-rays, scans, or mammograms or to laboratory personnel who are careless when evaluating tissue specimens or other tests. Sometimes a test or film is correctly assessed and reported to the physician, who neglects to follow up or even inform the patient about the reported abnormality.

At John A. Caputo & Associates, P.C., our Pittsburgh-based medical malpractice lawyers use the best pathologists and physicians to assist in the highly technical challenges of assessing the cancer misdiagnosis investigation. Together, we must establish that the diagnosis of cancer should have been done earlier and what outcome could have been expected if that had occurred. Our firm has pursued cases of delayed diagnoses of bone, prostate, primary liver, gynecologic, breast and other cancers.
