Failure to Diagnose Testicular Cancer Attorney in NYC
Time is of the essence when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Of course, testicular cancer is no exception. If a doctor fails to diagnose testicular cancer in a timely manner, the patient can suffer tremendously and may never recover from the impacts of a delayed diagnosis. Unfortunately, this type of medical negligence occurs far too often. If a medical professional failed to order the proper tests, didn’t heed the patient’s complaints, failed to properly read test results, or took too long to refer the patient to specialists, the patient may have a case for medical negligence. If you have been diagnosed with testicular cancer and believe that a doctor was negligent in your diagnosis or at any point during treatment, contact Mark L. Bodner, P.C. when it matters most.
Consequences of failing to diagnose testicular cancer
The early diagnosis of a person with testicular cancer can be the key to a positive prognosis. When a medical professional fails to diagnose testicular cancer, the patient may suffer significant consequences because of their negligence. Some of the consequences of a late diagnosis can include a diminished quality of life, the requirement of more invasive procedures, as well as the increased risk of death. Unfortunately, cancer patients, as well as their families, will have to face overwhelming medical bills, regular procedures, and the lost wages of someone the family depends on. Of course, this is in addition to the patient’s decreasing health and the emotional toll that cancer takes on the entire family. The victim may require a large team of medical professionals to assist with recovery efforts and even the potential for permanent disability and chronic pain and suffering. If the victim of medical negligence dies from their cancer, the family is left with the loss of a loved one as well as the loss of financial support, exceedingly high medical expenses, and expensive funeral costs. It is essential to consult with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who can help you fight for your rights and try to obtain financial compensation during this difficult time.
