What can happen if a doctor fails to diagnose renal cancer in a timely fashion?
When a doctor fails to diagnose renal cancer in a timely fashion, the patient’s condition could worsen as a result. This may result in the patient having to undergo multiple additional surgeries as well as receiving additional medical treatment. Failure to diagnose renal cancer in a timely fashion can also result in cancer spreading. This will make it more difficult and, in some cases, impossible to successfully eliminate cancer.
