Pancreatic Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney to File Lawsuit for Medical Malpractice

Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in a specific part of the body. In cancer of the pancreas, cancerous cells form in the pancreatic tissues. Roughly 23% of people diagnosed with pancreatic are alive one-year post-diagnosis, and about 8% are alive in five years. Pancreatic cancer accounts for more than 162,000 lives lost to cancer. Although prospects are low, diagnosing the disease in its early stages greatly increases the chances of survival. Unfortunately, many people are living with undiagnosed pancreatic cancer—their symptoms being disregarded by medical professionals. When their symptoms increase in severity, doctors finally run the necessary tests and diagnose the patient with pancreatic cancer. By this point, the cancer is in an advanced stage, and successful treatment and survival are unlikely. If your symptoms were ignored and you were misdiagnosed, you must immediately contact a pancreatic cancer misdiagnosis lawyer.

Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer
The symptoms of pancreatic cancer can be confused with the symptoms of less-severe conditions. Because of that, pancreatic cancer can often be misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. Someone with pancreatic cancer might experience the following symptoms:

  • Jaundice
  • Weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Pain in the abdomen and back

Which of the symptoms above would immediately raise a red flag? The majority of the symptoms above can be linked to depression or even stomach flu. Because of this, medical professionals often disregard these symptoms until it is too late.

Medical Negligence
Were you or your loved one a victim of medical negligence? Did you seek medical assistance only to be sent home to rest? Did your doctor perform any tests to rule out any serious conditions? If you spoke to your doctor about your symptoms and concerns, he or she should have ordered the appropriate tests. Some of the tests used to diagnose pancreatic cancer include the following: CT scan, MRI, EUS, laparoscopy, ERCP, PTC, and biopsy. Medical professionals have the duty of giving their patients the best care possible. If they fail to offer or perform the appropriate tests, they fail in their duty of care. Since cancer is fast-growing and fast-spreading, diagnosing pancreatic cancer in its early stages is essential. Once the cancer is diagnosed, the patient can be treated—treatment includes surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.  Unfortunately, many people do not get treatment for their pancreatic cancer until it is too late. Negligent doctors and hospitals can prevent you and your loved ones from getting the urgent treatment you need to increase your chance of survival. If you were affected in a hospital in California, you must immediately contact our attorneys. Our attorneys will file a lawsuit and help you recover the compensation you deserve—regardless of the hospital at fault. Whether you were affected by Cedars Sinai or Kaiser Permanente, our attorneys will file claims against Kaiser Permanente or any other hospital.

Type of Compensation Available
What type of compensation might you receive if you sue the doctor for wrongful death or medical malpractice? The type of compensation you receive depends on the details of your claim. Below, you will find some of the forms of compensation that might apply to your claim:

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

As you can see, there are many types of compensation that might apply to your claim. However, you should not expect to receive every type of compensation mentioned above. What determines the compensation you receive?  The amount and type of compensation you can receive depends on the specific details of your case. For more information of the type and amount of compensation you might be eligible to receive, you must contact pancreatic cancer misdiagnosis attorneys.

Cancer is a fast-spreading and fast-growing disease that can change a person’s life within a few months if left untreated. Because of that, diagnosing the disease in its early stages is essential for survival. Unfortunately, many people seek medical attention with symptoms and concerns. Instead of running tests to get to the root of the symptoms, many medical professionals disregard the seriousness of the situation and reassure their patients of their excellent health. Many times, patients return to see their doctors with further complaints of symptoms. When doctors finally run the necessary tests or when patients seek a second opinion, they find cancer.
