What will happen if testicular cancer goes undetected?
If testicular cancer goes undetected, the patient may suffer significant consequences because of their doctor’s negligence.

Cancer patients will have to face regular procedures, lost wages, and overwhelming medical bills. This is also on top of the emotional toll that cancer takes on a family.
Do I have a valid medical malpractice claim if my doctor failed to diagnose testicular cancer?
You will first have to retain the services of an experienced medical malpractice attorney. It is important that you hire an attorney who has assisted countless clients like yourself. When a doctor faces medical malpractice claims, they will often hire an assertive and skilled litigation team to represent them. They are willing to fight for their career by hiring aggressive legal assistance. This is why it is essential to hire an attorney who understands the ins and outs of medical malpractice claims and how to approach them. You and your attorney must prove that you were the doctor’s patient and that they owed you a duty of care. Next, you will work to prove that the duty of care was breached by the doctor acting negligently. Finally, your attorney will work to prove that this breach in care caused your cancer to worsen which resulted in you sustaining significant damages.
