Cancer is one of great tragedies of our time. And early diagnosis is one of the most important factors in fighting it.
Those of us who’ve battled cancer or lost loved ones know: just as finding cancer in time can save your life, missing it can be lethal.
As a medical malpractice lawyer in Memphis, I’ve seen doctors make major errors in cancer diagnosis. It’s a heartbreaking problem affecting patients with lung cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, and other cancers that can often be defeated if found early enough.
A recent client of mine was at special risk of lung cancer, which his doctor knew. His risk factors should have made his doctor very cautious; but instead, when my client showed classic lung cancer symptoms, including chronic cough and shortness of breath, the doctor chose not to test him for lung cancer.
What could have been surgically removed early on to save my client’s life was only found much later, when it was stage IV and terminal.
Cancer wins often enough. Why help it? When a person’s life could be saved, and we ignore it, it’s a deep injustice.
