What is Lung Cancer Misdiagnosis?

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer demises in the UK. Successful treatment of lung cancer largely depends on early diagnosis. Medical professionals have a duty of care to examine a patient for lung cancer, if the patient complains of some of the following symptoms:

Swollen face

Short breath

Unequal pupils

Droopy eyelids

Persistent cough

Weakness in an arm

Mass in the abdomen

Loss of appetite/weight

Dull sound when tapping on the chest

Swollen veins in the neck, arms or chest

In most cases, doctors of NHS or any other private medical professionals do a blameless job and deliver the care you need for your lung cancer. However, the condition is sometimes misdiagnosed and medical errors can happen when procedures aren’t followed correctly. We have come across GPs or cancer specialists who have failed to make a diagnosis as early as they should have done. Being diagnosed with lung cancer is extremely devastating, but dealing with the thought that your cancer has been misdiagnosed and that this has affected how the illness will develop makes the condition much worse.

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

When Can I Make a Misdiagnosed Lung Cancer Claim?

Our best cancer negligence solicitors have years of experience in helping victims of medical negligence lung cancer to claim compensation for delayed cancer diagnosis. We might be able to help you to claim compensation if medical specialists:

Failed to refer you to a specialist

Failed to recommend the correct tests

Failed to link your symptoms to lung cancer

Failed to provide you the right treatment after diagnosis

The main cause for lung cancer misdiagnosis is that the symptoms associated with lung cancer are almost identical to those of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD), aka smokers’ lung. Most smokers can have COPD but only a very small percentage will develop lung cancer so medical professionals may sometimes dismiss symptoms of lung cancer and assume that it is just smokers’ lung, thus committing an act of medical negligence.

Specialists and other medical experts should be completely aware of the symptoms of lung cancer and it is significant that they pick up any signs of a tumour at the earliest so the condition doesn’t spread. If lung cancer isn’t treated as early as possible then intensive action such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy might be necessary. Regrettably, negligent treatment can also lead to fatalities.
