Examples of Negligence Regarding Lung Cancer
Lung cancer-related medical negligence can include: misdiagnosis; improper treatment; failure to treat; delay in treatment; failure to perform appropriate follow-up; and prescription errors. Many medical mistakes can lead to a delay in diagnosis, which may deprive patients of the chance for successful treatment; these may include:
- Failure to test when a patient exhibits indicative symptoms
- Failure to correctly interpret X-rays
- Failure to have a biopsy performed when the physical examination results are abnormal
- Failure to react quickly to biopsy findings
- Failure to recommend appropriate treatment options
- Failing to monitor patients with a family history of cancer
- Losing records
- Failure to refer to a specialist
