It is never easy to learn that you have cancer. However, this news is even more difficult to bear when a doctor’s failure to properly diagnose your cancer has delayed your ability to receive the treatment necessary to place you in the best possible position to make a full recovery.
Your chances of survival are directly related to the stage of the cancer when the disease is discovered. The failure to diagnose cancer in an early stage may also mean more painful and rigorous treatments than would have otherwise been necessary.
