With cancer, an early diagnosis is essential. This is because if cancer is not detected early, it could worsen rapidly becoming harder to treat and also spread to other organs. Therefore, if you went to your doctor concerned about potential signs of cancer, only to have them dismissed by your GP or go unspotted by your oncologist, this can be absolutely devastating. Especially if it means that you now need more invasive treatment, or worse, that you might not survive the disease. If it can be proven that the doctor who misdiagnosed the symptoms acted in a negligent manner, i.e. another doctor of the same capabilities would have diagnosed the condition or at least referred the patient for tests then it maybe classed as negligent.
If you have had your condition worsened by clinical negligence in cancer diagnosis then you could be entitled to claim compensation for the harm it caused. In the very sad circumstances that your close next of kin relative died an avoidable death because of cancer misdiagnosis, you could also be entitled to claim on their behalf.
