When does lymphoma cancer become a medical negligence claim?
When there are mistake in treating or diagnosing lymphoma cancer, the effects can be devastating. If a medical professional fails to treat you correctly, it can cause significant delays and the cancer can grow or spread. If this is the case, you may be entitled to claim compensation due to medical negligence.
How is lymphoma cancer diagnosed?
There are guidelines known as NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines which help GPs to recognise the symptoms of illnesses such as lymphoma cancer so patients can be referred for tests to determine a diagnosis as quickly as possible. A diagnosis for lymphoma cancer can be determined by a biopsy, which involves a small procedure to remove some or all of an affected lymph node.
If a diagnosis of lymphoma is found, further tests may be performed to determine the stage of the cancer, and whether or not it’s spread.
What mistakes can lead to delays in diagnosis and treatment?
The quicker you’re diagnosed, the quicker you can begin treatment and the greater the chances of success of that treatment. However, mistakes can sometimes be made which cause delays and can lead to catastrophic outcomes. Mistakes include:
- Not recognising the symptoms of lymphoma, such as weight loss, tiredness, night sweats, fever and itching
- Failure to carry out adequate examinations and tests
- Mistakes by medical professionals who interpret test results
- Failure to advise a patient to return if their symptoms worsen
