What is Bowel Cancer Misdiagnosis?

The bowel is a vital part of the digestive system, which is divided into the large and small bowel – the small bowel being the longer and narrower of the two. Bowel cancer also known as colorectal cancer – includes both colon cancer (cancer of the large bowel) and cancer of the rectum (the back passage). Sadly, bowel cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the UK. More than 35,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year. In order to get the correct treatment, it is crucial for the medial professionals to diagnose the illness during its early stages.

Unfortunately, this does not happen all the time and not all bowel cancer cases are diagnosed when they are supposed to be. Regrettably, misdiagnosis of bowel cancer is a common scenario in the UK. If bowel cancer is misdiagnosed or if the specialist fails to diagnose the ailment all together, the disease can spread to other parts of body. Moreover, when the cancer is left untreated, it decreases life expectancy, thus a critical act of medical negligence is committed by the medical professionals.

If you or a loved one is diagnosed with bowel cancer and suspect that there is a delay in bowel cancer diagnosis, you may be entitled to compensation for delayed bowel cancer diagnosis. At Turner White Solicitors, our best bowel cancer negligence solicitors have the necessary knowledge and skill to handle your case with utmost compassion.

However, not all patients of bowel cancer get the quality of apposite care that they are entitled to when seeking medical cure for bowel cancer.
