Rectal Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney to File Lawsuit for Medical Malpractice

Rectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths. Like all other cancers, diagnosing rectal cancer in its early stages is essential. When rectal cancer is diagnosed in early stages, the patient can promptly begin receiving the treatment necessary to address cancer. In many instances, patients experience symptoms and seek medical attention for answers. However, their questions and concerns are disregarded. In many of these instances, people continue to experience severe symptoms; they are eventually diagnosed with rectal cancer. At this point, their diagnosis is severe, and their cancer is in an advanced stage—in which treatment is not as efficient. If you visited your doctor for concerning symptoms and you were undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, you should immediately contact our law firm.

Symptoms of Rectal Cancer
The symptoms of rectal cancer include weakness, fatigue, weight loss, anemia, painful bowel movements, changes in bowel habits, and the sensation that the bowel cannot empty. Other symptoms include blood in stool, mucus in stool, narrow stool, and abdominal pain. The majority of the symptoms, with a few exceptions, can be confused with symptoms of less serious conditions. How might a doctor react to these symptoms in a patient? A doctor might blame the symptoms on the patient’s diet, for example. A doctor might advise the patient to make specific changes to his or her diet, as well as drink more liquids. The doctor might also prescribe a medication to relieve the symptoms. However, the patient is sent home without having been tested for serious conditions.

Medical Negligence
Is it negligent to send a patient home without ordering tests to rule out a serious condition? The short answer is yes; it is negligent. Medical professionals have the duty to do everything in their hands to care for their patients. They must exercise high levels of skill and diligence when treating their patients. When it comes to screening and testing for a serious condition, doctors must offer these tests. The most common test ordered for the symptoms described above is a colonoscopy. During the colonoscopy, the doctor can identify abnormal areas in the rectum. A biopsy of any abnormal areas can diagnose cancer of the rectum. After the diagnosis, further tests and analysis might be required to identify the stage of cancer and the extent of cancer’s reach. If your doctor does not conduct the appropriate tests, your rectal cancer might go untreated and continue to grow and spread. If you begin experiencing severe symptoms going back for medical attention might reveal rectal cancer. If you were the victim of a delay in diagnosing rectal cancer, you might have grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit for not detecting rectal cancer. If the misdiagnosis of rectal cancer resulted in the death of your loved one, you could sue the doctor for wrongful death—our cancer wrongful death lawyers can help you take legal action.

Compensation for Your Claim
If you were affected by medical malpractice, you need to speak to a lawyer with experience in wrongful rectal cancer diagnosis to file a claim and recover the compensation you deserve. What type of compensation might you be eligible to receive? There are many types of compensation that might apply to your claim. The different types of compensation are listed below:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

As you can see, there are many forms of compensation that you might be eligible to receive. However, you should not assume that you will be eligible to recover ever form of compensation listed above. The type and amount of compensation you are eligible to receive depends on the specific details of your claim. Because of that, you must immediately contact our firm and speak with an experienced rectal cancer attorney. Our skilled attorneys will evaluate your claim and give you the information you need to understand the type of compensation that you might receive.

When people experience symptoms, their concerns are often disregarded by medical professionals. It is not until after patients begin experiencing severe symptoms that they are diagnosed with rectal cancer. At this point, cancer is often at an advanced stage and unlikely to respond well to treatment.
