Compensation for delayed diagnosis of cancer

Cancer is one of the biggest killers right across the UK and diagnosing this illness quickly can go a long way to finding an effective cure and preventing it from a fatal illness. With cancer, diagnosing it quickly is one of the most important ways to treat it, and for this reason it’s crucial that your doctor or GP takes the appropriate action as soon as they believe you could potentially have this dangerous disease.

If you are suffering from cancer and your doctor has failed to diagnose your cancer then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.

WHO COULD I CONSIDER A COMPENSATION CLAIM AGAINST?

If you have suffered from a delayed diagnosis of cancer then there are a number of people who you could consider making a compensation claim against. If your diagnosis was missed at the early stages then you could consider claiming against your GP or doctor if they have failed to identify an issue. You could also be eligible to claim against a specialist that you may have been referred to if you feel that they have not correctly diagnosed your cancer and accordingly your symptoms have worsened.

WHAT ARE SOME PROBLEMS WHICH COULD OCCUR FROM A DELAYED DIAGNOSIS OF CANCER?

If you do suffer from a delayed diagnosis of cancer then there are a number of potential problems which could ensue, some of these include:

  • Worsening of existing symptoms
  • Development of new symptoms
  • Spreading of cancerous cells to new areas of the body
  • Potential death
