Cancer medical malpractice cases arise when a health care provider fails to properly identify or diagnose a malignant tumor or commence treatment. Unfortunately, with most insurance carriers you are required to first visit your primary health care physician before any referral to a specialist can take place. Your primary health care physician is a general practicioner and may fail to detect symptoms or act on a specific complaint. Given the progressive nature of many types of cancers, failure to make a timely referral or order preliminary diagnostic testing could have a significant impact on the patient’s health.
The most common types of cancer misdiagnosis can occur when:
- A begign tumor is identified as malignant
- A malignant mass is identified as begign
- Misclassification of a malignant tumor
- A cancerous lesion is not identified during a biopsy
- Failure to refer patient to a specialist
- Mishandling of specimens by pathalogy
- Improperly read pathology reports
- Failure of the physician to adequately screen, diagnosis or follow-up with patient

Medical professionals most commonly diagnosis the following types of cancer:
- Cervical and Ovarian
- Lung and Thoracic
