Prostate Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney to File Lawsuit for Medical Malpractice

What is prostate cancer? Who does it affect? Prostate cancer affects men, and it occurs when cells in the prostate begin to grow uncontrollably. Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in American men, causing approximately 30,000 deaths and more than 160,000 new diagnoses yearly. Although the statistics for prostate cancer are alarming, men with a diagnosis are unlikely to die from prostate cancer because they receive the treatment necessary to control cancer. If it is unlikely from diagnosed men to die from prostate cancer, why are there nearly 30,000 deaths per year? Unfortunately, many men are not diagnosed with prostate cancer. Symptoms are minimal, and they can be confused with symptoms of other conditions; therefore, medical professionals are likely to disregard patients’ concerns. When symptoms become severe, patients are often diagnosed with advanced stages of prostate cancer, and their quality of life is affected.

Symptoms of Prostate Cancer
The symptoms of prostate cancer include trouble urinating, weak urine stream, blood in semen, erectile dysfunction, bone pain, and discomfort near the pelvic area. Although early stages of prostate cancer do not show many symptoms, routine screenings can identify cancer. As prostate cancer advances, the symptoms become more apparent and more severe. Diagnosing prostate cancer as soon as possible ensures that patients receive the treatment they need as soon as possible, decreasing the risk of death. If your loved one’s symptoms were ignored and he was diagnosed with prostate cancer near the end of his life, you can sue the doctor for wrongful death.

Medical Negligence
Were you a victim of medical negligence? Negligence consists of four elements: duty, breach, cause, and harm. To establish negligence, there must be a duty and a breach of duty that leads to harm. Doctors and all medical professionals owe a duty of care to their patients. They must exercise care, skill, and diligence to ensure that their patients receive the medical attention necessary to remain healthy. When patients seek medical attention with concerns about their health, medical professionals must perform the proper exams and run the necessary tests to reach the root of the symptoms. When medical professionals disregard their patients’ symptoms and fail to perform exams and run tests, they are breaching their duty of care. Subsequently, their breach of duty allows their condition to keep advancing without treatment—affecting patients’ quality of life and even causing death.

If a patient shows symptoms of prostate cancer, a doctor practicing his or her duty of care should perform exams and tests to rule out any dangerous conditions. A doctor should perform a digital rectal exam, a blood test, or a biopsy to check for prostate cancer. If you experienced symptoms but there was a delay in your diagnosis, you must immediately contact our law firm.

What forms of compensation might you be eligible to receive if you file a claim for the failure to detect prostate cancer? If you were affected by a misdiagnosis, you might have grounds to sue the doctor or hospital for medical negligence, and you might be eligible to receive various forms of compensation. The types of compensation that you might recover are listed below:

  • Medical compensation
  • Lost income
  • Burial and funeral costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

Although these forms of compensation might apply to your claim, you should not expect to recover compensation from every category mentioned above. Rather, the type of compensation you receive will be dependent on the specific details of your claim. If you or your loved one were affected by prostate cancer misdiagnosis, you must immediately contact an experienced prostate cancer attorney to discuss the type and amount of compensation you might receive.
