The diagnosis of cancer is often devastating news for them and their family to deal with. The distress and devastation can be heightened if there has been a delay in the diagnosis.

Most, though not all, cancer cases arise because there has been a suspected delay in the diagnosis of cancer.  The question then is whether that delay has resulted in a significantly worse outcome for the patient.  A key question can be whether the disease has gone “secondary”, that is metastasised to another part of the body and whether that could have been avoided by earlier diagnosis and treatment.  Much depends on the type of cancer, how aggressive it is, the stage it has reached and the availability of possible treatments.

These cases can be complex and require advice from carefully selected medical experts in the field of surgery, oncology and radiotherapy to name but a few.  Our medical negligence lawyers have in-depth knowledge and experience of handling such cases and of obtaining valuable financial assistance, which can be a valuable resource in supporting a patient through their recovery.
