A Missed Cancer Diagnosis Can Have Devastating Consequences

“You have cancer” are words you never want to hear from your doctor. However, hearing them too late can be even worse. When it comes to diseases like cancer, early detection is vital in seeing a favorable outcome after treatments. Catching a disease early can even save your life. However, due to negligence or medical errors, some patients do not receive their diagnosis until it is too late.

Our team at Galligan Law in Des Moines has a proven track record of success in winning compensation and holding your medical providers accountable. We understand that time is of the essence, and we work with a sense of urgency to help you obtain the compensation you need to mitigate financial losses and pay for your medical treatments.

The Support You Need To Seek The Justice You Deserve

Because of how serious cancer is, a missed or delayed diagnosis can be devastating and often fatal. Sometimes, doctors may miss the signs entirely or diagnose cancer symptoms as something else, such as missing the signs of bladder cancer by not investigating a urinary tract infection.

Common misdiagnosed cancers include:

  • Colorectal cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Bladder cancer

Depending on the type of cancer, the delay may or may not make a difference. Galligan Law has oncology experts to determine whether the delay changed the outcome. Using this information, we will evaluate your case to determine if you have a valid medical malpractice claim in Iowa.
