Delays in Diagnosis/Misdiagnosis of Lung Cancer

If lung cancer is diagnosed early the chance of cure may be good. Delays of a few months are unlikely to make any difference to the outcome. However if left, it is likely to grow and cancer can spread to other parts of the body.

Mistakes in diagnosing lung cancer can be very serious.

Lung Cancer Compensation Claims

Slater and Gordon Lawyers have recovered large awards of compensation where mistakes have led to serious delays in diagnosis. These have included:

  • Failing to heed warning signs such as a persistent cough, coughing blood, back or chest pain;
  • Mistakes by radiologists in interpreting x-rays or scans;
  • Mistakes by pathologists (doctors who examine tissue under a microscope);

Importance of Lung Cancer Compensation Claims

For people who become seriously ill with cancer and have a medical negligence claim, compensation may be very important for their quality of life. Compensation can enable them to have:

  • Private medical treatment, avoiding delays and in greater comfort than in NHS hospitals;
  • Nursing care at home;
  • Help with housework;
  • Money to make good any loss of earnings.

Where the patient sadly does not survive, a claim can provide for family members who relied on them financially or with domestic and other help.
